“Where is the Brock University?” “This way.” 2013

In the beginning of this work, I was thinking to design a manhole cover that with functionality and relate to my life. The functionality reminds me my QR code work. Also, most of my life in these several years is in university. So I had the idea, design manhole cover with the QR code of the Brock University homepage link. I think Brock University is the most famous thing in St Catharine, a manhole cover about Brock can be install in the city with no anosmia feeling. A QR code can makes people very want to scan it, people who new to this city will know Brock very soon by scan this manhole cover. There are not only a QR code relate to Brock, the beaver and ferret also the animals one the Brock emblem. A manhole cover can use last up to 100 year, the technology with develop faster and faster, even the QR code technique is in beginning stage, but it can be weed out in the coming decades. So I put a B arrow on the top of the manhole cover. It was inspiration from the north arrow. This B arrow will points to the Brock, people can follow the arrow and saw the tallest building in St Catharine- the Brock Library Tower.
