THOUGHTS ON ROMANCE FROM THE ROAD

 

Thoughts on Romance from the Road is an ongoing project that uses photography to document my text interventions on roadside marquee signs. The work addresses the effect of media and technology upon human desire. I place phrases on movie and motel marquee signs installing my own sign letters.

I use language that references aspirations toward contentment and fulfillment linked to promises of desire and romance provided by the realm of commodity and entertainment.  My texts are formulated to read as regurgitations of that, as though they are public diary entries pertaining to banal realities of self and relationships based on comparison with an ideal.
