“This was just a few days after the infamous Saturday in late May when thousands of locals packed the lawns of Trinity Bellwoods Park, eager for distraction and social contact after a couple of months of isolation. I’ve been interested in boundaries, and what form they take, for years: a wall, a fence, a border, a circle… the elastic edges of an aerosol plume. And so now, when we’re all so concerned about space – personal space, public space – we toggle back and forth between our memories around spatial boundaries (remember the “close talker”?) and the new reality: lines on the pavement, tape on the floor, circles in the grass.”
