Inspired by ubiquitous bus shelter advertising displays, such key Vancouver photo-conceptualist artists as Jeff Wall and Rodney Graham have long used ranks of bulbs set in a frame to illuminate large colour photographic transparencies from behind – these are called ‘light boxes.’ These light boxes will display changing photographic content produced in consort with students from Emily Carr University, a creative partnership with our near neighbour. Think of it as a 21st century Sistine Chapel, showing creative visual thinking in process from the next generation.
