Installation view of KRS Grief Ranking System

Sniper (2006) was at the time,  one of the largest text installations I had created. The text was installed in the Vancouver Public Library as part of Word on the Street in September 2006. For this text, I had the help of a very talented young designer, Katie Webster, who transformed the text from the page to a 12-foot by 12-foot poster.

“Sniper” was originally published in FRONT Magazine and this work looks at how the media reports crime, and how the narratives that result can assign blame (or not) to the victims of violence.
