Accessible Artwork

Accessible Artwork (Existential Sign) is a piece that symbolises the inanity of  life and questions the point of questioning our existence in a world where attention spans are short and most things consumable and disposable.

 

ACCESSIBLE ARTWORK

I decided the ultimate irony would be to have a sign, of the type often seen in kebab shops and convenience stores dispensing existential advice and missives that would make the viewer, expecting a sign to be a sign, signifying something for sale (when in fact it is the opposite), feel curious and uneasy and that ultimately they would stop and engage with the sign and rethink how they interact with the world around them and the validity of their own existence.

The work is designed to be able to be read by anyone and can be shown with an audio accompaniment for blind or visually impaired audiences.
