Amusing Offering: Evacuation Sculptures

(Originally published in June 2013)

Don’t Laugh, But A Single Artist Just Totally Outshined An Army Of Government Planners

Each stainless steel statue is 14-feet-tall, weighs 800 lbs, and is meant to withstand 200 years of wear and tear. Designed by public artist Doug Kornfeld…in collaboration with FEMA, the Arts Council of New Orleans, and the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

A fun reminder that good ideas can come from anywhere. Especially Guerrilla Wayfinding. Keep your eyes open.

Also, I wonder if fun ideas like this can scale, or if they eventually run into a signal-to-noise ratio problem…

Design Considerations:
When communicating important information – how might we do it in ways that are fun and beautiful?
