Temporary public art in the form of Polaroids have been placed under the 4th Street underpass, catching the eyes of Calgarians as they make their daily journey to and from  work.

The exhibit is the brainchild of Derek Michael Besant. It’s not Besant’s first contribution to Calgary of course. Indeed the artist also have permeant pieces on display such as the Skywalk, Enigma at the South Entrance of Mount Royal College, Daydream, and more.

The intention behind his latest exhibit under the bridge is to capture notions of “place and personal context.” Each photo is framed as though it were taken with a Polaroid camera and features a blurred out face alongside a superimposed statement.

Take a look below at some photos of the Polaroids under the 4th Street underpass:
