Compliant Traffic Signs
Madrone Art Bar, San Francisco
January 12 - March 31, 2023
Signs are all around us. They are designed to make us pause and refocus our attention in order to note a hazard, follow a rule, or find a location. Not following signs can have a variety of consequences.
Our world has become a place where the truth, and what rules apply to whom, has become fluid. What we once took for granted is now flipped, chopped up, reorganized, and sent back to us from a new point of view, often to suit a party’s best interest or specific needs.
These transformed road signs are a representation of that misinformation process without creating controversy and division. What do they now say or ask now? I encourage people to bring their own interpretation to them, smile and see actual traffic signs as having scrambled meanings inside.
