Partners Scott Chasse + Kenley Darling, working under the name “Signature Unknown” propose to design an original mural for the O+ Festival. They utilize geometric “quilt patterns” in much of their mural work, with their original take on this classic folk art form. Many of their designs already incorporate “X” patterns within the overall composition. They will create a new, original design with the “X” as a prominent geometric form as part of a repetitive series of “tiles” that connect to form the mural.
A primary theme in thier work is connectivity. The quilt-like patterns they create are meant to evoke feelings of community, tradition, and unity. Just as quilts have been created and passed down for generations, often without any credit to their individual creators, they aim to recreate this tradition in a new form. Their moniker “Signature Unknown” is an ode to anonymous folk art predecessors.
