(de) Appropriation Project Archive
Bruce Tomb’s (de)Appropriation Project Archive is a web-based and public art project. The website, www.deappropriationproject.net, focuses on 10 years of photographic documentation of the former Valencia Street police station, and the now prominently visible Valencia Street ‘art wall’ located between 23rd and 24th Streets. All images on the site have been archived, dated, meta-tagged, and sorted into a navigable interface. Tomb, an architect, furniture designer, artist, and owner of the Valencia Street building condones the wheat pasting and graffiti, though is insistent the wall belongs to those who use it, not him.
As part of Tomb's project there will be a Public Meeting to discuss the wall and its place in the urban environment. We invite you to download the questionnaire attachement (in right hand column) and attend the meeting at Southern Exposure on Wednesday, January 30 at 6:30pm.
