Signs of Life

Harman has encouraged the making of these signs since 2015, paying £10 for each sign. A collection of over 280 signs has now amassed.

Harman noticed Stevie making signs begging for money. He labours over them to pass time on the street while raising funds for accommodation. Stevie started out with bookie pens. However, after Harman’s initial £10 investment he began to create a more diverse range of signs.

“The work highlights one individual’s desire for shelter and time spent without it.”

Harman subsequently commissioned the creation of this four poster bed in 2017.
