Everybody Knows This is Nowhere: Street Signs

Aluminum, automotive paint, and photographic vinyl decals, 12 signs in series, 48" x 32" Each, 2006-2008 

In the Street Sign series, digital photographs of existing suburban street signs are printed and die-cut as automobile decals. Each decal is applied to the surface of a fabricated sheet of aluminum that has been custom painted at an auto body shop. All paint colors are taken from Martha Stewart’s Signature Series. Each sign is titled with the names of the intersecting streets followed by the name of the specific paint color. They are installed above eye-level as if one was looking up at a standard street sign.
