Nils Thorsen at CCA

I went to the CCA 2006 graduation exhibition last week, and saw some really amazing work, including David Maisel, who I remembered seeing on boingboing a few months ago. The picture below is from the work of Nils Thorsen. In addition to signs, there is video footage of the sign installers in action.
It's free, and open to the public daily from 10am - 7pm

Designer's Statement
My work examines what happens when one or more of the elements that give a sign authority are altered. My goal is to make the viewer of a sign question how they know a sign to be authentic and or trustworthy, who was involved in the creation and installation of the sign, and ponder how the stylization and the physical qualities of the materials give it authority.
