Overview

Remit: Create art for new Skytrain plaza about the history of local transportation. The work references the passage of time: the circle of a saw blade, representing Fraser Mills, frames the junction of North Road and Clark Road where Burquitlam Station is now located. Mia Weinberg hopes that transit users will gain a sense of their place in time and the continuum that connects the wagon roads of the 1800s to the Evergreen Line of the 21st century.
