Local Knowledge – archival inkjet print on habotai silk, enamel paint, powdered pigment, epoxy resin on wood panel – Sally Lundburg & Keith Tallett, (2014). The works are meant to serve as alternative signage, and provide warnings, invitations, and anecdotal observations for communities in transition. We play with humor and irony, and make use of misspelling, letter placement, and image/text juxtapositions to allude to hidden meanings. These pieces stem from the concept of local knowledge as a knowledge system that is dynamic as people adapt to changes in their environment and absorb and assimilate ideas from a variety of sources. All communities possess local knowledge – rural and urban, settled and nomadic, original inhabitants and migrants.
