Experience a Range of Emotions with this ‘Signpost’ on First Street Green

We went down to the crossroads and found this signpost. Which is actually what it’s called. The art installation, that is.

Last month, Australian-based artist Stuart Ringholt hammered “Signpost” into place on the park space curated by First Street Green.

Employing standard street sign design and materials (ex-USA, though) for this “sculpture,” Ringholt prompts passersby to address a range of emotions. A choose-your-own-adventure, if you will.

The signpost sentiments include:

Greed
Happiness
Sadness
Anger
Lust
Depression
Love
Sleep
Envy
Sadness

This latest public art project is in conjunction with a recent exhibit at the OSMOS Address on East First Street, “Nudes, Signs, and a Contract.” It’s an ongoing partnership that is further bolstered by NYC Parks.
