This reminds me of Irish comedian Dylan Moran at the Edinburgh Festival in the 90s, before he was famous. Semi-famous. He was decoding the emergency exit signs in the theatre: “First: cut off hands and feet, then head down stairs.”
Apologies to creator and photographer whose identities are now lost in time.
New York City’s Dept of Transportation commissioned artist James Morse to produce these lateral, funny, thought-provoking haiku signs. They are designed to alert pedestrians, cyclists and drivers to the unexpected on the road. Beautiful, genius, and amusing. Morse was already known for his guerrilla haikus installed in urban public space. Can’t believe he’s called Morse.
¡Guess! These are all over Mexico. Click photo to find out.
Apologies for my continuing semi-absence from this blog. I appreciate your patience and I thought you might enjoy this sign from one of the crafts stalls at the Ferry terminal between Vancouver and Victoria. It seems to represent the current state of the BC Arts Council thanks to the current corporate redneckery that prevails here in BC.
