Lead Pencil Studio Creates an Anti-Billboard

by Andrew Price

November 11, 2010
The art and architecture firm Lead Pencil Studio created this fantastic piece at the U.S.-Canada border crossing near Vancouver. Called Non-Sign II, the piece is a lattice of stainless steel rods that carve out the shape of a traditional commercial billboard in negative space.

Here's how Lead Pencil's Daniel Mihalyo describes the work:

Borrowing the effectiveness of billboards to redirect attention away from the landscape... this permanently open aperture between nations works to frame nothing more than a clear view of the changing atmospheric conditions beyond.

Refreshing, right? Co.Design has many more pictures.
