Delettering the public space
Delete! – removes all the written signals which normally try to attract the passer-by’s attention: a phenomenon we are sufficiently familar with from two-dimensional representations and photomontage works will be translated for the first time into three-dimensionality, into the here and now reality of Vienna’s Neubaugasse. The technique at the heart of Delete! is ‘wallpapering’, which is easy and inexpensive: all written signals (except for those necessary for road safety) will be covered over with monochrome, fluorescent foils, and individual three-dimensional letters will be enclosed in plastic.
