NOTICE: A Flock of Signs by Kim Beck is a recent installation at 100 Acres, the awesome outdoor sculpture park in Indianapolis that opened a few years ago. You can stumble on clusters of these arrows in several spots as you wander through the park.
Jean Baudrillard once stated that, “Disinformation comes from the very profusion of information,” which is most certainly at work here, where informative signs alternate with misleading and confusing ones.

The artist Kim Beck, originally from Colorado, now lives in Pittsburgh. Her work often deals with the form and intent of commercial signage and is definitely worth a look.
