Secret Message Society – Love @ NATO 2012
The Secret Message Society is a project that skirts representational and transgressive borders as a series of graffitis created with UV-reactive (fluorescent) spray paint that question the world of information that surges through us everyday and the legality of messages that are not visible except under UV (black) light. This image, created from a laser-cut stencil, is an exhortation of love first placed upon a wall of McCormick Place in Chicago briefly before the 2012 NATO summit. It issues a political challenge while lying dormant until someone with the proper means comes to find it, like a magic spell.
Dear Evil Bastards is first in the series.
