And lately, this archival impulse has led me to see graffiti, decals, signs, shirts as a sort-of folk art. I got this vocabulary from books like Hardworking, Goodlooking’s Filipino Folk Foundry
book my friend Chuck lent me documenting signs in Taiwan (title translated to Glyph Walking in Taiwan: Observation of Words on the Road
). Although I see this collection going in this direction, I'm left still wondering, what is a taxonomy? Who does it belong to? When is it done? When is it started?
