stranger, graphic, 2009
most people have at least one brand's symbol that they are a fan of, like apple computer or penguin books. i realize that my favorite symbols take advantage of me and deceive me into consuming their products or services more and more. i wanted to encounter them while they were alone and away from their usual commercial placement.
in this book, do i know you?, the popular symbols are separated and become strangers beside other unfamiliar strangers. the story i want to tell is of beings newly discovering each other without ever knowing the other's previous context.
