"A town where a yellow light means slow down, not speed up"
wood on acrylic
6 large signs, dimensions vary

6 signs with quotes from the tv-series Twin Peaks were placed (without permission) at different locations around the town Götene, Sweden - which is the place where I grew up. I have always thought of Götene as a very surreal place, much like Twin Peaks.
The signs were a response to Götene's new slogan "Sagolika Götene", which translated to English would be something like "Fabulous Götene" or "Mythic Götene". Some of the signs were removed quickly, others remained for as much as 8 months. The project went by unnoticed in the local press.

The chosen quotes;
"A town where a yellow light means slow down, not speed up"
"A place both wonderful and strange"
"The owls are not what they seem"
"Health and industry go hand in hand"
"Laura is the one"
"I'd rather be here than Philadelphia"
