On Site

The Con/Text Series embraces the written word literally found in the landscape.  Acquiring words and phrases directly from the raised text of historical markers and other plaques through wax-oil rubbings is rather labor-intensive and at times an absurd activity. The resulting effect is that of documenting the image (typically buildings) or map’s connection to its source (marking the paper on site with words from specific locations on the map).
