Positive street signs and mindful messages characterize the work of multidisciplinary artist Scott Froschauer. Froschauer utilizes a practice called "cultural jamming," which appropriates familiar elements from urban environments to make social critique. His work plays with our expectation of the every day street sign, forcing us to actually stop, read his work, and hopefully go through the day on a more mindful note.
Froschauer’s work is first and foremost experiential, focusing on objects and ideas that are not easily captured through photography and digital distribution. He believes that our culture considers being connected to oneself to be a revolutionary act. He attempts to create work that might expose and counteract the constant tides of alienation, judgement and addiction which our culture uses to avoid uncomfortable mental and emotional spaces. His primary focus is on exploring new spaces and techniques for communication.
This 12 inch by 31 inch square sculptural urban installation work is created with steel and DOT street signs. Turning traditional street signs into affirming messages of positivity and hope, Froschauer's work invites an infectious optimism. Affordable Continental and International shipping options available. This artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery.

Through the subversions of signs and languages, Froschauer transforms negative rhetoric into alternative messages of positivity, connectivity, and playfulness.
