#betweenourhomes is an visual exploration of text messaging as a platform for sharing comfort and encouragement. I source my text from original, unscripted text messages that I have received and create cut vinyl stickers in their likenesses. I then install them in public spaces where they can be viewed similarly to if they were still on a digital device. The messages are genuine and hopeful, and their meaning is not lessened by the format by which they were sent. By embracing advances in technology and choosing to use them as a means for building community, the negative stigma surrounding the usage of them can be overcome. There will be one central, larger installation (approx. 36" long) at chosen venue, but a number of smaller pieces (approx. 12" long) will be installed at other various locations throughout the Grand Rapids area.
