I am attracted to the images and language associated with real estate. I choose the words from local real estate lisings, to draw from language specific to the neighborhood. The words begin to take on a nuanced feeling when they are out of the context of the publication, but still connect to the community. They words are insipid, but they also have a hint of poetic hopefullness. Each letter is unique, with the graffitied surface of the building showing through. The signs refer to the space very directly, and suggest that this space is affected by new commercial and residential developments. And altough change is inevitable, it is important to think about what is lost in the process.
