Cliff, a site-specific drawing in vinyl, speaks in a contradictory fashion to its surroundings: its peaks and valleys are cast against the ultra-flat Midwestern urban scape that is visible through the windows in all directions. Amidst the incongruous desert cliffs one can make out single letters that spell out a slogan: ON STRIKE FOR BETTER SCHOOLS.

With the extended presentation of Cliff, a bumper sticker and an armband are being produced; they share a graphic sensibility and the title Better (2013). Both will proliferate into the social surround through various means from self-directed actions to roving group action.
