WHERE THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD

Description:
Where the Rubber Meets the Road is a 2018 installation by PEI artist George Beaulieu, who created large sculptures of crows from used tires. Beaulieu's installation shines light on the impact of wildlife-vehicle collisions. The crows are also meant as away to memorialize the dead

“I admire Crows, and other wildlife that adapt to us.They are intelligent and capable of eating a variety of things. It is not uncommon to see crows eating the consequences of our commuting, and roadkill makes a substantial contribution to their diet. As scavengers it is what they do: clean up a lot of our mess. One of the risks of scavenging is being hit by vehicles, which doubles the impact of collisions. So the crows don’t just represent ‘roadkill’, but also the layers of the impacts of driving." – Gerald Beaulieu
