The Graffiti Project
These works revolve around the materiality of the written word, its manipulation, distribution, accessibility, meaning, and how it is affected by place and time. Using forms based on actual graffiti extracted from the environment, the works address how mark and gesture act as communication as well as encryption from one ideological system to another. Through paintings, collages, installations and digital applications, the process of handwriting (intrinsic to both drawing and stitching) is emphasized.
