Sign Stealing

There’s a new project brewing. . . 

SIGN STEALING considers surveillance, crowd patterns, and the choreographies of public space. It distills the cohabitation of humans and smart machines into digestible bites of image, pattern, and choice.

This project is directed by artist Megan Young with contributions from a growing collective of participants, co-researchers, and engaged viewers. Early stage exploration includes a SloMoCo microresidency supporting development through user testing, critique, and resource sharing. Additional support includes a Get Outside grant from Neighbor Up Cleveland. The grant provides funding toward participant health and safety, while participating in the associated outdoor games.

Public engagement shapes this work from start to finish. Visit the project site to see a growing collection of videos, digital imagery, and community-sourced protocols toward more equitable system design.
