Description

Utility Writers is a study of the symbols written by construction workers on the asphalt and sidewalks of the New York City streets between 2016 and 2018.

How are these utility symbols reminiscent of graffiti?

The permanence, yet simultaneous impermanence. The chosen colors and corresponding imperfections.The discoloration. The readability and letterform variations. Their sudden appearance on the streets. The endless possible interpretations of these symbols, and ultimately the individuals involved, who write.

Exhibited at Wallplay on Canal in November 2018.
Produced by Ceci Garcia, curated by Laura Cartagena & Vibes.
