Justin Gorman

Posted by Patrick Alan Coleman on Fri, Sep 5, 2008 at 3:09 PM

One of the coolest things happening at the Works is the ongoing project by Justin Gorman. Gorman creates large signs of painted text that he erects in various city locales. They are a bit like temporary, truth-searching billboards, and they'll be popping up around Portland over the next week.


Instead of creating his signs in a studio, Gorman decided to bring the process to the Works. I watched the sign come together for a long time last night. It's a bit of meditative creation in the hustle and bustle of TBA's party space.


I think this one was going to read "Hush Hush..." The only problem is, I have no idea where he's going to put it. I can't find the information anywhere. I guess I'll just have to go and ask him tonight.
