Trippy Billboard Advertises Clean Air

In what has to be one of the trippiest yet coolest installations we've seen yet, Lead Pencil Studio has created this clean air advertisement at the U.S. and Canada border near Vancouver. The giant frame, made of stainless steel rods, curiously frames the air. Why? As Daniel Mihalyo of Lead Pencil Studio states: “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.”

Commissioned by the U.S. federal government, Non-Sign II is a sculpture that is part of the U.S. General Services' Art in Architecture Program. Lead Pencil Studio via [Brand 66] [Images by Ian Gill courtesy of Lead Pencil Studio]
