Steve Lambert: It’s Time to Fight
Two things I can’t get enough of — Steve Lambert and huge text signs.
Lambert’s latest work, It’s Time to Fight was installed recently in Pittsburgh, PA over a waffle shop.
Text-based work continues to inspire me; it’s accesible, layered, timely, and tactical. It can be hidden in plain sight. If you catch it, it can disrupt your experience of a landscape, and if you don’t, it patiently and quietly stands in waiting, alongside its capitalistic brethren. Text can steal our attention and interrupt our experience of space, particularly urban space, and that’s why we like working with it, I suppose.
