"The Distinct Sound Of Laughter In The Distance"
A year ago I travelled to London to work, and my guide for much of this trip was Edwin. Through working together those weeks in the streets we found much common ground between two artists living on opposite sides of the Atlantic.
Over the past year I have been tagging Edwin’s words and text all over Chicago, and he in turn has been tagging my words and text all over London. This collaboration began as a simple experiment in social communication, activism,and a “graffiti pen pal project”, however it quickly expanded with the events of 2016. The UK’s Brexit Vote, The turmoil of the US Presidential Election, The Refugee Crisis, these events have influenced a project about a world that is so connected, yet disconnected. We are more capable than ever of communicating with one another yet perhaps the least capable of actually learning from that exchange. "The Distinct Sound Of Laughter In The Distance”
This project culminates with a book documenting this correspondence over the past year.
