“The road movie Easy Rider, Yellowstone National Park, Route 66, Stephen Shore’s Uncommon Places or David Lynch’s Twin Peaks; these random names and places immediately fire the imagination. Objects in Mirror shows just how deeply the American landscape has penetrated our daily lives: in films, adverts, books and music. Fact and fiction merge in a landscape that lends itself to being viewed through a frame, be it a car window or a television screen.”

“Using visual work and text, as well as posters, reproductions, facsimiles, paintings and other objects, Hans Gremmen takes us on a journey through his imagination of the American landscape.” Quoted from Centraal Museum site.

The official manual for signing in the United States is the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), published by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
