"Faux road signs" created for The Billboard Art Project in Savannah, GA (May 14, 2011)
All photos David Morrison
The event took place May 14 in Savannah, GA, for 24 hours. 50 artists participated. This time, the series of faux road signs I created were projected on billboards in town and not close to the highway. So the effect is a little bit lessened - but I think the series in Savannah looks great, nonetheless!
It is really interesting to see how the place where the billboards are situated plays a role in the meaning of the image itself.
In Nashville, TN (April 2nd, 2011)
Here is an image of the previous series, created for the event which took place in Nashville, TN. The context plays a great role in the meaning of the image.
