A billboard by British artist David Shrigley, displayed in New York City earlier this year:
The commissioner of this piece described it as “a reminder of our fears, insecurities, and paranoia, which are so familiar to our contemporary society.” I take it as a reminder that when I feel alienated and alone, I’m not alone in those feelings. There’s something humorous and comforting about a billboard broadcasting what most of us try really hard to keep hidden.
If you could put a thought bubble on a billboard to help people feel a little less alone, I wonder what it would say.
