Eaglo Paint Seasonal Quadripartite|
Nostrand Avenue, Brooklyn-
taken from August, 1998 through June, 1999
Ad circa 1930's.
This sign on Nostrand Avenue and Glenwood Road- near Brooklyn College- illustrates the effects of nature on a fading ad, making it a dynamic reminder of the passing of time- not to mention ones own mortality.
The last image was taken on June 22, 1999- and is an unusual summer state for this entwining symbiosis of signage and vinage. Apparently the roots were cut and the healthy, lush leaves have withered in the summer sun- another unexpected death.
