Signs Fiction: Collector’s Edition
Signs Fiction: Seeking a New Language
Over the years, construction workers seem to have developed a mysterious script made with adhesive tape that is readable by only a few.
What do these signs mean? Is this some sort of secret language? Or is there no meaning at all?
Fascinated by cities and by semiotics, I decided to create an artistic and slightly ironic visual statement about these found signs.
I am not seeking to reveal their absolute truth. Instead, I want to question our perception of our surroundings. Are things always as they seem?
During the research process for the book, I have made 11 "visual notes" exploring the communicative potentials of signs and involuntary forms made with tape.
Each painting is made with adhesive tape, spray, and wall paint on chipboard (33 x 23 x 1,2 cm).
Together with the book you will receive the painting as shown here.
Each cover comes with a different adhesive tape applied manually: black tape (for 70 copies) or orange (for 30 copies).
