I remember coming across this image when I researched my first exhibition at the museum. What I love about it is the sense of scale it portrays – that the signals are lifesize. I will also confess to wanting the lens cleaner to strike a pose so he looks like a third signal with his arm out in front. I like to think he did that before the serious shot was taken.
