Non Sign II

The U.S. government recently commissioned a sculpture at the Canadian border crossing near Blaine, Washington, and the result was an eerie ghost billboard, named Non-Sign II, made from twisted bits of metal. Creators Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo of Lead Pencil Studio wanted to create an empty block of sky that would make viewers more aware of how many billboards and government signs already clutter the landscape. It’s hard to imagine that a notoriously artless federal government paying to install something this ominous on the border with Canada, but I’m glad the Art in Architecture Program supported such a cool, if creepy, project. It sure beats that piece of crap they’re trying to put up on the other border.
