“The shape is the message … It’s an abstraction that seeps into and onto the pavement, that creates a sense of vulnerability for the body juxtaposed (against) a harsh outside world with many things coming against you… This is where the body tries to overpower the street.
“People just listened, they cared about my work and wanted to be a part of something original.
“I’m just so appreciative for Canada being above us and not Iran or Singapore.”
