Sign Language

No Parking on the Dance Floor by Darwin Bell

This Saturday, I spent the early part of my evening with Violet and Jackson at Litquake, an anual literary event that features hundreds of authors reading in every bar and cafe along Valencia street. While bouncing from reading to reading, at the Chronicle Book's host venue Den, I spotted the work of Darwin Bell. His Polaroids of signs are strategically and beautifully mounted to form phrases. So if a picture is worth a thousand words, then is a picture of a word worth a thousand and one?

other things I did and saw this weekend:
De Young Reopening Celebration
Hideo Wakamatsu
Headland Open house
Yoon Lee
Mike Arcega

The Significance of Memeorandum
One of the glories of the 'net is the ability to get all the news you want instantly.
This is a great blog you have here... what a great place to share information. Hope you don't mind I paid you a visit. I also have a site about Rash Guards because I like to surf.

bye bye - thanks for having this blog!
