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.

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.
