My Avian Collaborators are Diligent Workers

Everyone asks how long these birdseed letters of All Consuming will last and I can only guess. It's been three weeks since the final sign was installed and the smaller letters naming the years since each city existed are completely gone. And the larger letters naming each city are in varied states of wholeness. Some have already become illegible and broken into pieces, while others (Great Zimbabwe for instance) are still quite clear. I predict they may be entirely gone by the end of June.

Here are some dusk and evening shots from June 9th:

The Artist

Nicholas Fraser(b. 1969, Lakenheath, United Kingdom)

Nicholas Fraser's projects combine and recast texts and phrases from sources elevated and mundane. He explores our compulsion to communicate and the gap between what we intend to say and what's expressed. Often site specific and highly ephemeral, his work draws connections between histories and issues of the moment, making us aware of our position in a wider continuum.

Fraser began filming storefronts in 2010 for the ongoing project Fronts, collecting a comprehensive video-based, web accessible lexicon that also functions as a manifold portrait of contemporary street-scapes. He earned his BFA at the Atlanta College of Art (1995) and his MFA at SVA (2008).
