Mission 8: Signs of the Times

DIFFICULTY: 5

This mission is inspired by recent posts from Worm and Bread and Where’s Waldo.

Both posts dealt with the manipulation of signs for comic, political, artistic effect. If you haven’t already checked them out, we urge you do do so now:

Cher the Road

I Sniff a Rat

Then, create or modify your own sign.

This mission can be as involved as you want it to be. It could be as simple as discretely stripping a few letters off a sign to give it a drastically different meaning. Or it might, like the works from which this assignment draws its inspiration, involve considerably more effort. We may award additional points for those who go the extra mile. However, keep in mind that if you’re if you’re working in high profile areas or are dealing with a particularly controversial message, the risks as well as the potential payoff will be higher. Although Park’s arrest brought his work international attention, I’m guessing most of us would rather not see the inside of a cop car.

As always, good luck and good art!
