WE ARE ALL HOMELESS is a long term art project that began in 1993 when I started buying and collecting homeless signs as a way to deal with my discomfort when I saw someone on the street with a sign. Since 2008 I've done dozens of installations of signs in the US and UK. In 2015 we completed a documentary called SIGNS OF HUMANITY, which explores the inter-related themes of home, homelessness, compassion and humanity and has been accepted into 8 film festivals. The project has been featured in international media including NPR, BuzzFeed, HuffPost, and others. US would be an exhibit of signs that draws attention to 2 things: 1. That we are all human beings deserving of respect and compassion, there is no US and THEM, just US. 2. The U.S. continues to struggle with homelessness, including homeless veterans, women, children and the mentally ill.
