Five Large Scale Wall Pieces from the San Francisco days

The pieces posted here were made during the time I lived in San Francisco. It was dawn of the internet, social media, dotcom era explosion.  The work directs its attention at the humor of recruitment via different systems of information. The "wall" plays a central "communication" role within each piece.
