I had to cross the Canadian/U.S. border on Friday, and I was surprised to see this sculpture waiting on the other side, visible from the border line-up. It definitely caught my eye and put a smile on my face.
An excerpt from The Globe & Mail:
Non-Sign II and other Apertures, installed on the U.S. side of the crossing about a week ago, is a 15-metre-by-9-metre non-billboard; a framed absence.
“We’re using the vehicle of the billboard as a way to reinforce your attention back to the landscape and the atmosphere, the thing that the two nations share in common,” said artist Daniel Mihalyo of Seattle’s Lead Pencil Studio, who co-created the work with Annie Han.
