Vancouver Especially - Detail

Ken Lum’s Vancouver Especially includes some very fine details: bricks of many hues, door handles and bedspreads, graying paint and aging stucco. But it’s a representation, a fake, right down to its artificial turf.

Kitty-corner, just a few metres away, is an olde style house I like to think of as a Home Depot Special. It looks unoccupied, a fake house -right down to its artificial turf.
