Artist's Description

Here’s the crux of the problem. How do you really decipher this river sign? Are ``no boats prohibited’’? If indeed no boats are prohibited, that means ALL boats are allowed.

On the other hand, if the sign is supposed to say ``Prohibited water beyond this point’’ it means that the water itself is prohibited.

Someone has a lot to answer for. If indeed the sign was meant to prevent boats from crossing an invisible line, it should have said, quite simply: ``Stop. No boats beyond this point’’.

Or maybe it’s just another backstreet buoy!

Featured in YELLOW TWO, August 2010.
