Citing Vancouver's wildly popular steam clock on nearby Water Street, 22 After releases steam at regular intervals from a gridded manhole cover. While the billowing vapour gives free rein to the imagination, by remaking the original setting of the steam clock--a place where some of the city's homeless found warmth--the work invites reflection on the rise of hostile architecture in downtown Vancouver.

The Cabinet is at 149 W. Hastings St., Vancouver, 4th floor, in front of room 4390.
