Installation view of a text video slideshow from an ongoing project exploring found graffiti
HEY (October - November 2018) is a video slideshow of 250+ graphic texts from an ongoing series exploring found graffiti. It continues an experiment with language, bold colours and geometric shapes first used with a pop-up print installation, Jeder Traum Hat Seinen Weg (September 2018).
Running for 27 minutes on loop, the video presents a selection of words and messages vandalised across Europe and beyond. It comes from a collection of raw graffiti that began from 2011, an active process of random discovery, documentation and, more recently, appropriation. The project began as a personal curiosity but has since continued to develop as new ideas emerge over time.
Part of an active series of projects attempting to reflect accumulations and traces from the periphery.
