Art or prank

In Artist’s Freeway Prank, Form Followed Function. L.A. artist Richard Ankrom made his own highway sign and attached it to an existing sign to help aid motorists at a confusing freeway exit. State officials didn’t notice for nine months until an item showed up in a local paper. Excepts from Ankrom’s video show how he made and hung the sign. Brilliant. (thx nicole)
