Abstract

Two billboard signs, one sited in a tree in an alleyway in Islington, London, the other in a soy-bean field in Fargo, North Dakota. Photographic dyptich documenting these works. Both signs offer "better scenery"; a textual transcription of verbal guidance; a description of a journey to the exact position of the sign in the opposite location. Both texts, with their very different references, accounts of distances and terminology, finish their advice with the same line: "...you'll see a sign, which describes the location of the sign you have just finished reading."
