Sensory overload: we are surrounded by signs and billboards and other demands for our attention, to the point where we tune them out.
As I travel near and far, I often give myself an assignment: look for unusual doors, special architecture, rippling reflections…and sometimes signs of the times.
In the next few entries here, I’ll share some of what I’ve seen spelled out in full view.
I’ll begin with time travel, old signs of the times.
Long Gone, Not Forgotten
On the Grand Parade
Accessories for Harvard Yard
Don’t Let Your Dogs Bark
Camp Drum in northern New York State near the Canadian border has served as a U.S. military training base since 1908, in various forms. In the late 1960s, I visited the installation and found this sign in an abandoned maintenance building. Photo by Corey Sandler, all rights reserved.
