MAZE explores various systems and pathways using recognizable symbols from street signage. This installation also aims to express the tension and chaos that I personally feel as a result of ingesting these cues and navigating an urban setting.
I am visually attracted to the color, bold symbols, and textures traffic signage offer. My intrigue of signs is also steeped in skepticism regarding how these signs truly impact humans. Through deconstruction and rearrangement I aim to critique and challenge these visual cues through my art. My work explores ways to use the formal elements of these signs to recreate different meanings as well as express what they represent to me. I often wonder how much of a role these signs really play in our lives.
