Mixed Signals


Recently the streets of Lyon were taken over by faux traffic signs that matched real ones in color scheme and dimension, but had an entirely different message.


One hundred signs ranging in subject matter from fish to hearts to literal messages were placed all over the city in a manner that would likely make you do a double take if you actually came across one.

Made by 52 artists from around the world, the street sign project is meant to make you stop and think, and in many ways to stop and smile.


See all of the signs on the BoPano Website.
