from SIGNS. Printed plastic signs with self-adhesive vinyl. 2002. Dimensions: each panel is 8" x 12".
A series made by blocking out words from pre-printed signs using pieces of self-adhesive vinyl, in order perhaps to isolate the underlying sentiments behind these standard communications. For example, "Sorry, we're closed" becomes the simple and abject "Sorry", or a series of prohibition signs becomes the litany "NO NO NO", or "HELP WANTED" devolves into a desperate call for "HELP". These are installed in out-of-the-way spots of the room, as these types of sign usually are.
