Precipice

The mission of the Precipice Alliance is to increase awareness of the global effects of climate change. To do so, the Alliance will fund high-profile, innovative public artworks that address this urgent matter. The 8 foot high neon letters, installed in the windows of the former American Can Company factory and future site of CANCO Lofts, read “It is green thinks nature even in the dark.” Thanks to Core77 for the link.

Reminds me of a work Smashed To Pieces (In The Still Of The Night), an installation made in 1991 by conceptual artist Lawrence Wiener. It sits on top of a World War II anti-aircraft defense tower in Vienna. I like big type.
