American Quotes

Julia Hürteris an artist who works with text and images culled from popular media.  She lived in Columbus, Ohio for the last year and has collected American quotes that she found in her daily junk mail.  Divorced from their visual cues, the messages are a distillation of American marketing culture: cajoling, demanding, and cheering.  In between these, you can find several quotes from Abraham Lincoln, a very wise president.  They stand in stark contrast to the banality of American marketing.
