    Finding herself mesmerized by the spray painted esoteric scribblings that utility workers use to communicate with each other on the sidewalks and streets, CHARLIE MILGRIM imagines their seemingly universal language as a “street code” so esoteric, only those in their gang can decipher it. While the messages have a limited palate; fluorescent pink and yellow, she has taken this as an invitation to expand these symbols, investigating their potential as alien communiques.
