Artworks, Stations

We, Our, Us


Project Description

Susan Silton’s We, Our, Us (in progress) expands on her series investigating the historical use of stripes as social and cultural signifiers, and is motivated by the idea of transit stations as shared public spaces. The porcelain enamel steel artwork for the station platform will include three prescient messages in English, Korean and Spanish—the predominant languages of the neighborhood—embedded within multicolor-striped fields to explore individuality and diversity while acknowledging our collective human experience.

Artist Statement

“My projects interrupt—in subtle and more overt ways and through combinations of humor, edginess and subterfuge—the assumptions we make based on our observations.”
