Earlier this year I signed up for a postcard of the month club. Each month I get a postcard from an Ontario artist that depicts something boring. The first such postcard was spectacular – or rather wonderfully not!
Here is second postcard from the club:
My scanner has been doing a crappy job of things lately sadly. But these curtains remind me of so many hotels that I’ve stayed in over the years.
The photograph, to me, really captures the feel of claustrophobia and imprisonment that has reflected so much of our lives during this pandemic!
Here is the back of the postcard:
“Robert Dayton is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and performer originally from Canada. He left Canada, then when the Prime Minister went on TV and said ‘Canadians come back for The Pandemic’, he did. This postcards is of where he is in Canada. Wish you were here. Surrey, BC”
“Glen. Fun fact- there is no door in this room! Just kidding – Robert is allowed to roam freely in Surrey now. Hope you enjoyed this week of ‘False Spring'”.
