Billboards line highways and busy urban intersections in a effort to capture the attention of potential customers. Remember Brazil, the movie?
A new type of billboard erected at a border crossing near Vancouver, BC, shows that sometimes they can be downright thought-provoking as well.
The sculpture features a tangle of stainless steel rods, cleverly encasing a big chunk of Blaine, Washington’s clean air. Viewed from the right angle, the sculpture creates a striking scene: order surrounded by chaos? simplicity hedged in by complexity? nature choking in a cloud of pollution?
The installation, titled Non-Sign II is the work of Lead Pencil Studio, an avant garde art and architecture studio based in Seattle.
