Water in it’s many forms has been a reoccurring theme in the Signer’s work over the past four decades. Following the physics of fluid his artwork is intended to take the shape of it’s container. These boundaries have been set like a science experiment with the results firmly established as art.

Room is left for variables in these investigations. More than simply proving a hypothesis, the artist is interested in data that falls beside success. Hit or miss the denouement always entertains the unpredictable. The detachment involved in calculated performance is at once broken when the artist hand delivers a small box of snow to the doorstep of a participant.
