Tell Me How To Be Here

Tell Me How To Be Here is an ongoing series of hooked rugs, comparing varied forms of municipal and colloquial language used to describe and dictate interactions between humans and their environments. Specifically, I am comparing the language of municipal signs found in Ontario, to the quirky phrases spoken by my grandmother who was raised in rural Nova Scotia. With the rugs I am interested in decontextualizing both forms of language, and considering how their meanings change when they are presented through a traditionally feminine domestic craft medium.
