Since I’ve been in Charlotte, I’ve been obsessing on signage. It’s been a very long time since I have lived in such an urban environment–signs are everywhere.
From the beginning of my residency at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation, I had this idea that I might be able to collect words from signs and use them to write pithy phrases.
It’s kind of hard! I’ve been collecting the words, but my vocabulary is still quite limited–like a child’s. So far, I have managed to photograph and then crop these words.
