100 Acres: NOTICE: A Flock of Signs by Kim Beck

100 Acres: NOTICE: A Flock of Signs by Kim Beck

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.

Do these arrows count as signs, or are they merely forms in the landscape? As a graphic designer, that’s a question I asked myself as I walked around, searching for more arrows.

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.

Other sculptures at 100 Acres include Stratum Pier by Kendall Buster, Free Basket by Los Carpinteros, Bench Around the Lake by Jeppe Hein and Eden II by Tea Mäkipää.
