The ultimate archival form for a physical image, oddly existing in a world where images are ephemeral!
When we make a sign, we "add space" to our landscape. Walls, signs, and screens--often of enormous size--are erected where only air existed before. In this way, our Natural environment becomes full of boxes. Forest, oceans and skies become decorated with neon circles, parallelograms and triangles.
I am inspired to transform these various modes of commercialized space. I imagine I am neutralizing found "ad spaces," by removing the message, leaving just the "add spaces," or the empty colored shapes, behind as a record. Thus graphic space with capitalistic intention transmogrifies into minimal "add spaces," memorializing in a subtle way the place where an ad once was.
