Clint Burnham teaches at Simon Fraser University. His most recent book of poetry is Pound @ Guantánamo (Talon Books, 2016). The photographs in this issue were taken in late 2016, as a way of noting visual signs of the ongoing displacement and housing crises in Vancouver. They are appropriations/found images, and conceptually continue the “Stories for my iPad” series, exhibited at CSA Space in 2016. #4 is a poster that critiques a mural festival—a poster which someone then tried to tear away. #1 says too much and too little at the same time—the hydro box is tagged and grimy, and “Vancouver is over” is enigmatic: why is Vancouver over? Then, with #5, a sweet reminder, on a bicycle at the Gilmore Skytrain station, of the anti-Olympic protests in 2010.
