More Surface Activity...

Another example of the familiar 'roadkill' (with something of a Pop Art flavour) found upon a section of the double black lines, themselves in proximity to further road markings at this particular location, providing further compositional incident...



And then, a little further along the walk home, some intriguing, rather boldly-coloured marks, signs, spray-painted (drawn) upon the road surface...


What can it all mean..?

Note too the wonderful 'archaeological' appearance of the double black lines here, with each layer (black over black over original yellow) displaying significant evidence of its historical existence.

a bent arrow, plus five(?), times... what, i wonder? hmmm, some mathematical equation, a formula, a code?

expect a bevy of burly roadmen with the requisite attire of safety waistcoats and hard hats to ponder upon the situation, before only one of them actually begins diggin' a hole.. do keep us informed of future developments on the kerbside, inspector toot...

Curiously, these 'mathematical' (?) markings have occurred upon about the only stretch of road in/through town NOT to have been dug up (entrenched) over recent months, Jazz, so it's probably overdue for such treatment, not to be the only road in town to be left out, etc!
I wonder if the 'equation' relates in any way to the dimensions of any potential hole..?

Or otherwise, is it litle green men (using, in best Yves Klein style, their own brand & colour of paint to do so) trying to contact us or leave cryptic messages (that might remain visible from space)?!

JazzGreen said...

now, little green men leaving messages, that's quite absurd...

perhaps it's time to finally close the 'roadkill' case, detective inspector...

I can only offer the defence of end-of-academic-year exhaustion in realtion to my fanciful delusions, Jazz..!

Tragically, I don't think it might be possible not to keep being drawn to the roadside & representing the results of my findings - I appear to be as stuck-fast to the subject matter as anything squashed into the road surface!
