Dysgraphia is a project based on Jordan Martins’s interest in the Chicago-specific tradition of hand-painted, block-letter grocery signs which have come to be associated with Hispanic markets. By exaggerating the expressive colors and gestural rhythms of the original signs, Martins aims to build patters that simultaneously attract (fluorescent colors, bold shapes) and conceal (by undermining legibility). In this sense they are related both to natural camouflage and bright plumage used by animals to attract mates, or broader notions of visual stimuli to affect or sculpt behavior. This project began as a series of storefront installations.
