A Sign of the Times
Where we strictly monitor human movement!
Just kidding. It's really the sign drawing attention to the counting device above the Christchurch Art Gallery gift shop door. I thought it amusing.
I blame my over-active imagination!
In reality it is part of a gallery-wide work by Spanish artist, Maider Lopez, who is one of the 25 artists from 15 countries participating in SCAPE 2008 Wandering Lines: Towards a New Culture of Space, which officially opens on September 19. I do love artworks that 'spring out of nowhere' and make you rethink your everyday environment - and anything that draws attention to the proliferation of marketing text and signage in our urban environment gets a very big tick from me.
