Stationed directly in front of City Hall, Broken City Lab will present Reflect On Here – a sign built with 8-foot-tall letters coated in retro-reflective material, which will come to light at each turn of a vehicle from dusk until dawn. Reflect On Here calls on people to think on the infrastructure of the city, the attempt to create place with architecture, and the materiality of the text itself.
Broken City Lab is an artist-led interdisciplinary creative research group that tactically disrupts and engages the city, its communities, and its infrastructures to re-imagine the potential for action in the collapsing post-industrial city of Windsor, Ontario.
