lièvre du parc
Michael Pinsky Lost O
There is huge amount of redundancy in the contemporary world of signs
and symbols. When a company collapses or changes name, what happens to
its logo? When signs are removed or updated in our streetscape where do
these unwanted items that shape our visual world reside? As a memorial
to Ashford’s lost ring road a location would be found to create
a cluster of signs recovered from the Shared Space scheme. As the project
progressively thins out the signage, street and traffic lights around
Ashford, they will find a new home as a sculptural form. The sculpture
will not be defined through construction, but through displacement.
Location - The junction
of Somerset Road and Wellesley Road.
