Public installation - Bootle, Liverpool.
117 road and traffic signs representing peoples' ideas and memories of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal [a Re-Dock project]

Constellation of Signs is a playful and thought-provoking - art installation developed by Re-Dock and Alan Dunn, in partnership with LinacreOne and Liverpool Biennial.

The work is made from 117 aluminium traffic and information signs mounted on the wall next to the bridge. Each sign represents a distilled version of one of over 300 ideas and suggestions for future of the Leeds-Liverpool canal, gathered from local community during the course of our community workshops and activity days.

Road and information signage uses a very accessible visual language - usually reserved for passing on information, directions or giving notification of a warning or prohibition. Public signage typically uses simplified shapes and primary colours, and the ideas contained are immediately recognisable and understood by a broad spectrum of the community at large, including children.
