For the past two years, I have been collecting “FREE” signs from curbsides throughout Southern Vermont. It is a common practice here to discard unwanted goods on the curb with a handmade sign designating them as free. Driving past, I’ve been struck by this word, with its various meanings, embedded in the landscape. In 2017, I began collecting these signs (replacing each one with a “free” sign that I had made). This piece is still in progress and will continue throughout this summer. The finished installation will consist of over 500 signs and will debut this summer at Gravity Gallery in North Adams, Ma.
