OK Both Ways

A pessimist is a man who looks both ways when he crosses the street - Laurence J. Peter


An artist intervention. This road in Bath had damaged direction text which should have said ‘LOOK BOTH WAYS’ when complete. From 2008 to 2009 I removed small pieces of the lettering discreetly until the result was ‘OK BOTH WAYS’.

Part of a series of possible interventions with public road lettering. I also tried to start this in Shenzhen but was shouted at by a policeman.
