Darker Than Black Art Installation

Poem in park by Darker Than Black

Toronto Graffiti Street Art
Poem in park by Darker Than Black

“Beautiful girl
You don’t age like fine wine.
.
But the world is yours.
.
For now….”

I was trying to figure out how to explain this.. poetry and interesting art finds aren’t the most Instagram friendly. I’ll just try and explain this the best as I can.

February 18th

It was nice and sunny Monday afternoon (which was a holiday btw). It was only -7C (19F) and it was way colder with the windchill but as long as it’s sunny outside.. you can deal with the cold. Anyway, I decided to go the park when I had been exercising most of the summer and autumn. It snowed the night before.. so it makes everything look fresh.

At the top of the stairwell.. I noticed from the distance what appeared to be sign attached a tree. I’ve seen that particular tree hundreds of times.. so I knew something was different. When I got to the bottom of the stairs I realized it was an art installation.

The framed art contains a poem and it was secured to a tree. There was some wires and a button. I pushed the button but nothing happened. I thought it was pretty brilliant even without the light which must have run outta batteries.

The rest of the pictures in this post are all from the area where I found this.

Later Monday evening I looked up “Darker than Black” on Instagram who is a “Visual poet “.. and they have posted this back at the end of January.. I reposted their video for the last series in this post… so that you can see how it lights up.

I love finding stuff like this.. It’s really creative and original.. Two Thumbs Up for Darker Than Black.. I look forward to finding more poems in unexpected places !

Spudbomb did this mural a couple of summers ago. It’s hard to get a picture of it in the summer because that tree blocks the views.

Winter is a good time to get pictures of street art.
