mounting the signpost – part 1

the wwoofer philemon in action

In october 2016 we started a new social sculpture, called “signpost“. The target is, to mount signposts at places of social sculptures. The arrows will show direction and distance to other social sculptures. We want to make this contemporary movement visible. We connect the locations in a physical way.

Philemon started some days ago digging a hole in the ground. Then we constructed a cladding by using an old tire.
