  • Edition of 2000
  • A Sign for the City is a public art project by Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber that reassigns the meaning of Vancouver's Nine O'clock Gun. The twelve-pound cannon in Stanley Park is now fired nightly to mark the time. Previously it was fired to signal the close of the fishing day and as a navigational aid. For this project, each daily cannon blast is symbolically dedicated to a cultural, social, or political figure or event in Vancouver or BC's history relevant to that date. The project acoustically memorializes the politics that ground this history, towards imagining Vancouver as a socially and spatially just city
