The Tin Room

mixed media, 1992

(collection of University of Victoria)

Calgary, was walking down ninth ave and came upon this friendly sort, "Come on, were going to some drinkin." he said. I followed him to this open tin shack, three walls and a roof, all of tin, a old couch and some upturned buckets. Three of them, all friendly with one of them silent and shaking. They proceeded to puncture a can of lysol and drain it into a gallon wine jug of water. A swig every fifteen minutes seemed to be the routine and when passed to me l politely declined.
