AS LONG AS IT LASTS is a collection of photographs that record Julie Shiels ephemeral text interventions on urban waste. Over the last nine years, Shiels has transformed hundreds of abandoned objects on local streets with stencils of quotations and truisms sourced from the public domain. She says of the project: “I wanted to rework the detritus to reveal the tensions that occur as a suburb becomes both more desirable and simultaneously more homogeneous. Over time the intention became less about the social and more concerned with impermanence and the passing of time.”
