because we found it: On this site stood a woman who could not afford her medicine
Norm Magnusson has a fascinating project called I-75 where he puts historical markers all along highway I-75 that look like your everyday signs that you see while driving. Except his messages are political and thought provoking instead of historical.
Magnusson’s blog reads: …unlike most artworks on social or political themes, these markers don’t merely speak to the small group of viewers that seek out such work in galleries and museums; instead, they gently insert themselves into the public realm. ”Are they real?” is a question viewers frequently ask, meaning “are they state-sponsored?” I love this confusion and hope to slip a message in while people are mulling it over.
