Signs

Zimmer, Robert and Shoben, Andrew. 2012. Signs. [Art Object]

Item Type: Art Object
Creators: Zimmer, Robert and Shoben, Andrew
Abstract or Description:

Signs is a permanent artwork created for a school in South London.

A special signpost with five moving arms is installed in the lobby of Corelli College. Each arm can point to anything on the earth or the solar system, showing the location and its distance from the school. Its five heads can also point to imaginary things, to things that will happen in the future, and alternative endings to stories. To mathematical solutions, to peoples ancestry and to scientific breakthroughs.

Commissioned for a school in South London, we believe the children will have a great deal of fun and learning dreaming up ways to use the artwork. It has also been shown in Brookfield Place, Perth Australia for the Perth International Arts Festival.
