Project 11: another, more subtle, approach

Another diptych. This time I have tried a subtle approach and selected a vista where the signs are prominent but not overly so and just changes the symbols from passive to active.

Sings finals-6

I think this diptych has a very different connotation to the earlier rendition of the image here. That image was a playful photo where I created an inconsistency within the vista; this diptych makes a serious point about the associated values that different types of symbols create. For example in this case the active wheelchair user symbol appears much more positive to me even though it’s simultaneously aspirational and oppressive in its values.
