The interaction between the infrastructure and people living in the urban environment has been of interest to me for sometime. Recently, I have been attracted to information delivery systems, visual literacy, and semiotics. My intervention into this blurry line of public versus private space attempts to cannibalize the symbols and language of road construction.
E Girard, between Frankford and Day St: I have actually never had a car, so I don’t know how bad the parking situation is. However, I’m pretty sure parking tickets, jerky drivers, and digging cars out in the wintertime all suck. I ended up having to transport my Space Saver on the subway from my studio in Old City to Fishtown for the on-street exhibition. When I arrived around 10 AM there was no parking. It was really frustrating and I didn’t find a space until around 11 AM.
