Menu stands illuminate and present words that assemble together to create meanings and images in the minds of the reader. Essentially they are the physical support for the signifiers. Signs is the materialization of a mental image of an empty menu stand constructed vicariously through the hands of another. Signs will be placed on the peripheral edge of the gallery and will be used as structures to support the light that will illuminate the works in Memory Theater. Signs as signs.
