This is a video showing how I made Galloon, a road tattoo for the Navy Pier in Chicago. Road tattoos are commemorative, site-specific, community-based, tattoo-inspired public artworks on roads.

“The road tattoos of Steed Taylor are evanescent commemorative communal and interactive installations distinguished by history and ritual. Personalized markings by individuals bound through specific commonalities, the results are ultimately works heavily invested with emotion, and made more so by being sited as public art works.” Koan Jeff Baysa, Chinese Biennial 2008 Beijing curator
