Signs of the times
I love signs. My growing personal collection is here. There is a real joy in finding a sign like the tagged “Respect Signs and Signals” (Boston),Â but many artists have mastered such interventions as a kind of physical meme. So I particularly enjoyed Joseph del Pesco’s interview on the excellent SFMOMA Open Space blog with Anthony Discenza about his Street Signs Project, “Coming Up: Greater Horrors.”
Other favorites include, of course, the amazing Rigo 23
Germaine Koh’s Journal on mobile signs.
Steve Lambert’s equally funny mobile arrow sign.
Finally, straight from the horse’s mouth
Which is proved by the ban on public billboards in Sao Paulo.
btw, Discenza is selling limited edition prints of his signs for a new project. Help support his habit.
