(NOTE: Collaboration with Aimee Began.) This mural, created for the Media Gateway room of the new North Quad complex at the University of Michigan, positions graffiti, or drawing/writing on walls, as an ancient (yet still contemporary) technology that complements (or contrasts with) all the new technological possibilities of the “Media Gateway”. It fills the walls with a historical survey of graffiti genres that reference the history of the site (formerly the Frieze Building, Ann Arbor High, Carnegie Library), and the history of U-M in general. The mural is done entirely in white chalk – applied many different ways – over chalkboard paint. Its two sections, in the East and West alcoves of the room, are further divided into an upper and a lower section by a chalked continuation of the picture rail that runs along the rest of the room’s walls. Upper sections are permanently sealed; lower sections are unsealed, and will constantly evolve over time as students erase and add to the piece.
