Invisible signs

Giles, Lawrence George ORCID: 2011, Invisible signs [Show/Exhibition].
Authors:Giles, Lawrence George
Abstract:There exists an almost ubiquitous prevalence of signs, signage and information graphics throughout our society, whether this be information signage, such as a notice that instructs, advises, informs, warns or commercial signage which is designed to cause recognition, familiarity and affiliation with the viewer. The way in which we receive, digest and understand these has become almost second nature, resulting in these signs becoming almost ‘invisible’ to us within our daily landscape and everyday experience. ‘INVISIBLE SIGNS’ attempts to address this whilst additionally questioning the nature and use of these everyday structures within the environment. Focus here relates to the physical and metaphysical ‘support’ for such mechanisms / devices and the impact that these have viscally when this is removed, raising questions as to their use, function, interpretation and meaning as part of our everyday experience.
