The billboards stood deeply embedded and clearly removed from the landscape, at […]

A City Feeling Better

This week I decided to do something productive in my spare time and I ended up with this! I made some message boxes and put them around the city. These boxes work much in the same way that those numbered tickets at the deli do. However, instead of pulling down and getting a number, the strips […]
