Public Art Park, Testing Grounds

We are living in a fast-paced world where signs are designed to get our attention to keep us safe while we are moving around in the city. Yet the effects these signs produce are controlling our everyday behaviour. As an individual living in society, occupying public spaces is sometimes fear inducing, especially for the minorities who are always feeling a lack of agency. THE DE(SIGNS) subverts the use of A-frame caution signs, and rethinks languages and voices existing in the public realm.

This project is a collaboration with Irene Li (sound).
