Lead Pencil Studio, lead by Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo (who live in this house, stalkers) recently completed the above project Non-Sign II. The project was commissioned by the US government and is situated along the US-Canada border. I came across the project here, where Jen Graves describes the project’s inspiration as follows:
“They noticed the way the area is packed with signs—advertising billboards, and then, closer to the border, a proliferation of government signs. Their hope is that their sign, flying by enigmatically (“What was that?”), will add a little bit of awareness to the whole signage landscape in the border zone. Just open up a free space, really. How very American. The empty rectangle frames only a view of sky as you drive by, nothing else.”
It’s a sky that looks ominous in the renderings… welcome to America?
