(Commissioned by Art Metropole)

Year: 2002

Medium: Public intervention with debossed business cards

Description: Art Metropole invited artists to use the format of business cards to intervene at the Toronto International Art Fair. The artist responded by creating cards with text that was not printed but was pressed into the surface of the card. He approached visitors to the Art Fair and asked them if they would pose for a photograph, then he handed them one of the business cards. The card inscription read: “Would you pose for a photograph for an ad? Would you pose for a photograph for a ritual?
