1. "Survivor Circle Bus Shelter"

2022
Digital

I, Justine "Tini" Stilborn have been honoured by Transit Saskatoon and the City of Saskatoon to be given the chance to unveil a bus shelter I designed. The designed was inspired by the stories the The Survivors/Elders Called to Action Group (now known as Saskatoon Survivors Circle), a group of Residential School Survivors and Indigenous elders and old people living and working in Saskatoon. This art piece is a tribute to the cultural genocide experienced by the indigenous peoples. Designed as a narrative tool it seeks to establish a connection with our community by telling the stories of Residential School Survivor experiences and truths.

2. "Unum Under The Moon"

2018
Digital

Drawing inspiration from the Dance painting created in 1909 by Matisse and reducing the figures from 5 to 4 and then colouring each one of them in the colours of the Native American Medicine Wheel. I then depict each figure in various biological sexes/physical builds but focus on them all looking happy. My focus is on diversity and unity. The four elements tie into this theme of diversity. I believe we have many societal problems in contemporary culture and that resolution can be found in embracing our differences.
