Thanks to everyone who was able to join the conversation at the Disrupting Barriers in the Area of Accessibility event on September 29 at the Lost & Found Cafe. Also, a BIG thanks to the event speakers and to Carmen Papalia for creating and organizing this event. All images were taken by Thomas Quirk.
Big Rock Candy Mountain – Sour vs Sour – As part of a 3-month engagement with a Queen Alexandra Elementary School grade 3/4 class, artists Hannah Jickling & Helen Reed taste-tested a range of flavours and developed a miscellaneous vocabulary to describe them: sounds, shapes, words, elaborate fonts, synesthetic line drawings and emojis. With visits to-and-from East Van Roasters, the group learned about single-origin, fairly traded dark chocolate and navigated its tense (and tacky) conflation with cheap candy from the gas station nearby.
