Yellow Caution Tape

Description

Employing a biodegradable form of the familiar bright yellow caution tape that usually warns “CAUTION” or “DANGER”, this work conveys a more cryptic message. It reads : “DANGER. I THINK I’M FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU.” A Strangely private message in a public form, it raises several questions on the part of the viewer. To whom is this addressed? And who is in danger – the person falling in love, or the intended audience? Degradation occurs in a time period between 180 days and a year. Sold in sentence lengths of approximately 71 cm.
