Inspiration through colourful advertising and neon cityscapes has led to a creative take on the industrial function of coloured flags and signals that direct travel of trains, planes, and ships, known as semaphores.

Counter sites within urban areas such as Federation Square, Times Square, Moscow’s Red Square, and Shibuya offer a visual and audio feast of semaphore imagery. These sites offer a workplace, a festive space, a physical location and a hyperreal site for information-exchange, all at once.
