lead pencil studio: non sign II

‘non-sign II’ is an installation by seattle based art collective lead pencil studio located at the canada-US border near vancouver. the sculpture is made from small stainless steel rods that are assembled together to create the negative space of a billboard. while most billboards draw attention away from the landscape ‘non-sign II’ frames the landscape, focusing attention back on it.

  • Nothing becomes Evreything

  • As to the concern for the birds flying into this and getting impailed, they are not as stupid as you might think. They are more likely to nest in this which would add to the sculpture’s beauty.

  • Touchdown!

  • chaos to see unnoticed beauty.

  • it seems…dangerous

  • @dan, its all about the structure, texture, and material fabrication. Lets see some of your work…

  • @ Dan

    Really? I feel like “the presence of that other thing over there” is what CREATES the void.

  • How long until it’s riddled with carcasses of impaled birds?
