OUT OF SIGHT is See The Vision, Grab The Vision's inaugural project. A participatory public art installation by artist Lawrence Weiner, OUT OF SIGHT brings the artist’s signature texts off of the wall and onto the floor. The installations, some of which reach over 60 feet, are based on a hopscotch pathway that encourages participants and passersby to reflect and explore the power of self-actualization and empowerment.

ABOUT OUT OF SIGHT
OUT OF SIGHT is a participatory floor installation that aims to inspire and engage people through visualization. The work, which is modeled on a hopscotch, physicalizes positive thinking through the use of Weiner’s signature typographic texts. When a passerby engages with OUT OF SIGHT, stepping across and over phrases like “Spit into the wind and hope for the best,” they are saying yes to a culture of hope, self-determination and possibility. OUT OF SIGHT is not only a work of art but also an enlivening experience for each person who encounters it.
The installation is uniquely adaptable to indoor and outdoor locations in parks, plazas, museums and schools.
OUT OF SIGHT’S AUDIENCE
OUT OF SIGHT (produced by STVGTV) has been created for visitors of all ages and all walks of life. Teenagers and young people especially may find it poignant as they consider the direction of their lives while facing important ethical, spiritual and emotional decisions. Versions of the work will be created in different languages to facilitate installations throughout the world.
OUT OF SIGHT PRESENTING PARTNERS
OUT OF SIGHT has been installed in Miami, Melbourne, Belgium, East Hampton, Chicago and Singapore (with additional cities currently in development) at top museums, public parks and civic spaces. Currently, OUT OF SIGHT is on view across the city of San Francisco.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lawrence Weiner was a seminal figure in Conceptual Art, and has been an integral force from movement’s creation in the 1960s to the present day. Over that time, his work has taken on a variety of forms – often typographic or text-based – but has been unwavering in its pursuit of expressing the power of language as “sculpture” in which the elements described in the text are the essential constructive elements of the work.
