Anezka, Anh and AJ intervened at the Washington Bridge by creating a series of transparent plaques. These plaques aim to frame and bring attention to aspects of the bridge which often go unnoticed or which everyday users wish to cover up. Their goal is to create a perspective shift, a moment of pause, which elevates the unexpected and unwanted voices of the Washington Bridge in a subtle fashion.
The aim is to subvert the expected through re-imagining the kind of content that can exist and be appreciated on a public plaque.While the voices of graffiti, litter, and decay are often painted over or swept away, these plaques exist to create a space for enduring commemoration of these details, from then frame their existance during and continually after their visible time on the Washington Bridge and Linear Park.
