Art Starts Now utilizes the silt fencing used at construction sites to prevent erosion as a scroll to present poetic lines of text. This provides an opportunity to integrate art into the construction phase, adding something interesting to the typical mix of construction activity. It’s a value-added process; rather than buying new material, silt fabric already required for the project is embellished with the selected lines of text.
All told, we received over a hundred rolls of fencing from the construction company. We painted lines of text onto the fencing using 17′′ letter stencils, markers, india ink and foam brushes. The lines of text ranged from 26 to 55 feet long.
