John Morse 
New York/Atlanta, GA, USA
i was recently commissioned by flux projects to create a series of 'roadside haiku' using the format of yard sale signs (aka bandit signs). 500 of the signs (ten haiku in editions of 50 each) are posted around the city of atlanta. i thought this might be of interest to your 'signs of our times' project.
more info on the project at:
the ten different haiku can be viewed in situ on my facebook web page at:
the installation has raised a tiny tempest (a bit of fun to round out the dog days of summer i guess) as a local "city beautification" group came out in opposition to the signs, including a running story on the local ch 2 news. please see:
Each edition of 50 signs is dated, signed and numbered by the artist.
