Advice and Desire

[portfolio_slideshow size=medium navpos=bottom]

Advice & Desire | Temporary Occupants is an installation of text-based groundless thread drawings on wall panels in the corridor by the library at Eastfield Community College in Mesquite, TX. A viewer’s experience of the work is not necessarily sequential, but from left to right the texts read:  “develop interest”, “develop Knowing”, “develop style”, and “I hope to see you in Paris soon and again.”    The works are part of an evolving translation and transformation of a personal letter.  The letter didn’t necessarily say these things in this order.  I’m interested in the relationship between these pieces and the signage often present in this hallway, signage that encourages passersby to improve their lot in life through participating in community college.
