Le Montrealais: hello everyone, i am israel. i live in the east end of montreal. with a dog and a mentally ill neighbour. both of whom are my best friends. i walk around with them a lot and take shots of the city thinking it has some hidden message to say to me. that is the size of things over my way. i hope you can share in my world through city spk.

For those that don’t know, the Farine (flour) Five Roses sign is a towering behemoth of typography that floats over the near city center skyline of Montreal. It is putting it lightly to say that it is a fixture in the identity of the city. It has become more like the very language of the city.

Love it or hate it, the sign’s been part of the MontrĂ©al skyline for over sixty years, and sadly probably won’t be around much longer. Local designer and intermedia artist Matt Soar has just launched a participatory art project all about the Farine Five Roses sign at <www.farinefiveroses.ca>.
