The art of exclusion

Public 'art' at the Convention Center C-Train station in Calgary.  Not art designed to communicate or foster understanding, its only goal is exclusion. 

It's an anti-homeless measure like pretty decorative doorstop spikes designed to keep away the shivering souls who would sleep on top of the grates for the warmth.

Sometimes I fucking despise this city.

I was nosing around on google to see if anyone else had things to say about this and I found an article on a knitting site that showed these sculptures in handknit sweaters. I can't even describe how angry and sorrowful this makes me.
