I excavate, organize and collect promotional posters, cards and flyers. The mass of ephemera I gather speaks to the complexity and scope of navigating life today. I am intrigued by how these materials represent the dissemination of information and the fragmentation of experience. By looking at urban information overload, I point to larger questions about how history and meaning are determined. - Stacy Smith
