I am puzzled about the meaning of the new public art at the new Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre. A metal deer sculpture surrounded by industrial looking pipes.
When we moved to Surrey – then, the City of Parks – deer bounded through the forest. In recent years, the marauding packs of SUVs have figuratively mowed down all the Bambis.
The City of Parks has become the City of Parking on clogged arterial roads. Ironically, the last live deer I saw was on a construction site for another MTM Grand*. (*MTM= Monument to Megalomania).
Understandably, I am nostalgic for the lush, forested community versus our now-denuded, concrete suburb.
What the Buck, I guess we are stuck with the reality of the metal deer in the bemusement park.
p.s. I wonder if Donald Trump, if elected, will put up a wall to ward off the intrusion of Foreign Canadian Deer fleeing from our construction excavators.
