The mural’s main purpose is to relate to the students, so the design became a mirror—reflecting how students use this busy hallway. We took photographs of students who volunteered to act out themselves: waiting for class to begin, talking on their cell, finishing up schoolwork and interacting with each other. Their silhouettes were painted in different colours to represent their youthful optimism, a stimulating learning experience, as well as multiculturalism. In the background is Dundas Square, the heart of Toronto and Ryerson University’s lively campus. Extending down the hallway is another section of the mural with papers tossed into the air, celebrating student life and the beginning of their careers.
