“It is one of the strange ironies of this strange life that those who work the hardest, who subject themselves to the strictest discipline, who give up certain pleasurable things in order to achieve a goal, are the happiest.”
— Marcus Junius Brutus

An examination of architectual anachronism through public work. This installation, only accessible through augmented reality, displays a layered image of Brutus—the Roman politician, orator, and in most relevant terms, the most well-known assassin of Julius Caesar. Located in the same ten square feet were three assassinations over the past 22 years, as obtained by Toronto Police Service open data. Consequently, all three murders were perpetrated by men whose names began with “Br—” and were of Romanian origin.

“Be not deceived. If I have veiled my look, I turn the trouble of my countenance Merely upon myself. Vexèd I am Of late with passions of some difference, Conceptions only proper to myself, Which give some soil perhaps to my behaviors.”
— Marcus Junius Brutus
