This article reviews an exhibition where a group of artists have gathered to show their visions of art for commuter communitites. Artist Robert Durocher photographed himself standing on a street named after Emily Carr. Michael Trommer captured the sounds of a near-cacant Yorkdale mall and mixed them with voices resulting in a haunting sound. Leslie Peters and Jeremy Drummond made videos shot from the open windows of moving vehicles.
