#MINE

A gold mirrored #MINE sign was photographed from San Francisco to New York City. Inspired by Woody Guthrie's anthem This Land is Your Land, it reflects on private and public lands; the individual and the nation particularly following the 2016 US presidential election. A Guthrie recovered stanza says: “As I went walking I saw a sign there / And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."  / But on the other side it didn't say nothing, / That side was made for you and me.” Using the Trump Tower typeface, the #MINE sign points to the greed in the exploitation of natural resources and nationalism. In the spirit of Walt Whitman's Song of Myself, it is also a gesture of recuperation of land and its image for a collective self.
