Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Environmental Design / Exhibitions, Museums & Installations / 2006

The monstrous highlighter looked as if it had just painted a fresh yellow streak on the curb of a no parking zone, the white-out gave the impression of a freshly painted white cross-walk and the desk lamp was equipped with a sensor that would illuminate areas where people would typically go to read such as a park or an outdoor seating area.
