Consonance is a series of photographic street posters that explores the nature of public speech. Using the graphic forms of the alphabet to inspire prototypes of objects for use in street demonstrations (such as bullhorns, flags, and barriers), the work depicts language as the tools for ongoing collective action.
Consonance is shared by Roman Susan Art Foundation as street posters on buildings, construction sites, and common infrastructure across Chicagoland, as a partner program for The Available City of the Chicago Architecture Biennial.
