Civil Defence Series, 2000

Singular:Fissions Exhibition at the Diefenbunker
Carp, Ontario
July-October,  2000

As a way of extending the physical scope of the singular:FISSIONS exhibition and reminding urban dwellers of their vulnerability in the case of nuclear attack, I created a series of Civil Defence posters. Placed in ad cases of bus shelters in downtown Ottawa, the posters reflect the optimism sported in government-issued survival manuals on nuclear war. Each of the posters is 5.5′ x 4′ and designed to be backlit.
