Checking out the real estate

Artist: Alan Stanger

Corflute is a durable plastic material that is commonly used for temporary signage boards. As they are lightweight, waterproof and sturdy, they are a very popular method of advertising in the real estate industry and for election campaign advertising.

Reusing the signs by reprinting is not cost effective as it is just easier to buy new printed signs and throw away the old ones.
I created this piece not only to raise awareness about Corflute wastage but also to pay homage to my old dog, Sebastian. His favourite thing to do in life was to take a weekend drive with me in my FJ Holden, head out the window, ears blowing in the breeze…
