More process on the project!
I only have two narratives done right now because I’m busy refining the technology and hardware aspects of the interface (and I had to move to a different location), but finally moving along.
The main focus of her work is the use of words and ideas in public space. Originally utilizing street posters, LED signs became her most visible medium, though her diverse practice incorporates a wide array of media including bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches and footstools, stickers, T-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, sound, video, light projection and the Internet.
Holzer’s works often speak of violence, oppression, sexuality, feminism, power, war and death. Her main concern is to enlighten, bringing to light something thought in silence and was meant to remain hidden.
I have done work with LED letters and such things in the past. I love the idea of using simple text in a public space to convey my message but I also want something more tangible, tactile.
I have read her Truisms before, but completely forgot until I just stumbled across her name again.
