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.
