Sign Language

Ben Graham's avatar Ben Graham

An environmental installation of communication devices, using traditional institutional means, to convey non-traditional social messages. All to often, communication does not take place because of an assumed and inherent (mis)understanding of universal comprehension or knowledge. I have worked for 40 years as a visual communicator emphasizing the maxim, "Communication Defines Conscience, Silence Compels Silence". 'Sign Language' takes the constructive aspect of this premise to the streets, confronting and engaging its audience and the general public directly, on many levels.
