HEAD LINES

© François Duconseille

Un projet réalisé durant la résidence Play>Urban de Johannesburg en septembre 2011

I began to work on the head lines (1)… installed all along the streets, panels which deliver daily enigmatic collages of words, mixing english, zulu and africaan. Drivers are inconsciounsly submitted to continous mysterious words assaults. With there bold typography and grammar shortcuts, these captions are meant to remain tattooed in the brain. About nonsense and meaning destructuration… further about logical reflection, consciousness… or submission and mental abdication
