Write On This // Public Space Intervention

"What Is Beautiful Here?"
"What is beautiful here?" - Day 5 (CR)

/Title of Work/ "Write On This"
/Medium/ Posters - Public Space Intervention
/Dimensions/ variable (2' x 3' posters in public locations)
/Date/ May 2004

Write on This: Posters Index

A series of nine questions are posted in heavily postered public areas (in particular those places covered with advertising for products, music, and films.) Each of these posters has a single question printed on it in large black type, and each has a black marker on a string hung with it.

Click on a poster image, below, to see the complete documentation of that poster's transformation over the five days of the project's duration.
