À LOUER / FOR RENT
Interactive public art project by Niklas Roy features a “For Rent’ sign that follows passers-by of an empty shop window - video embedded below:
Sherbrooke’s downtown has many abandoned shop fronts. My installation was set up in one of them. And as nobody likes to stroll in roads with empty shop windows, I wanted to do this retail space a favour and help it to find a new tenant who can care about it.
