Galen Gibson-Cornell. Invisible Cities: The silent, unnoticed networks 
that permeate urban areas and fill the interstices of daily life in a city.

Thick layers of street posters, flyers, and advertisements color the 
external appearance of many neighborhoods of Berlin. These structures 
have a purpose- to communicate events, politics, and ideologies to 
passers-by. However, they are quickly ripped, vandalized, written on, 
and covered up; thus each voice altered, muddled, covered, and lost in 
time to the buzz of the vibrating city.

Gibson-Cornell renders these invisible signs visible. He deconstructs 
the universal system of street posters by pointing to the moment when 
its function ceases, and its individual voices lost. It is within this 
moment that his artwork begins. His materials are those of the street- 
found posters, tape, and paper—and he dissects, rearranges, and builds 
unique and curious artworks that question the systems at work invisibly 
in our cities.

Galen Gibson-Cornell (United States, b. 1987) is a visual artist working 
at the intersection of printmaking, photography, and urban commentary.

His work questions the role of prints and printed matter in urban 
landscapes--particularly dealing with posters, street artwork, 
advertisements, and other ephemera that cover the exterior walls of many 
of the world’s cities.
