Inspired by McCollum’s renowned Visible Markers Series, in which he explores notions of the Art Object as something that obtains it’s original significance through the process of it’s exchange, rather than merely through it’s making and presentation. The Visible Markers lend a physical form to a very common verbal gesture: Thanks.
