Serial Images and Reading the City

A week ago I visited the Surrey Arts Centre for the Among the Plazas and the Courts: Writers Reading the City event. Presented in partnership with Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Creative Writing program. With all the changes happening in Surrey, I thought it would be interesting to hear how the expression of ‘city life’ is changing in writing and art. After all, art imitates life, right? Upon entering the Arts Centre, my first stop was the gallery to check out Beyond Vague Terrain: The City and the Serial Image. This exhibition showcases a combination of photography and serial images to represent ideas of the city. Some of my favourites:  Sylvia Grace Borda’s . A very bold, yet somber collection of  backdrops and bus stops in Surrey. Did you know that there are 1100 bus stops in Surrey? Enjoyed the larger -than- life stops of the city. Another winner is Vancouver Apartments by Chris...
