The idea for this series came to me while visiting the Pompidou Centre in Paris. This fabulous contemporary art gallery has a very distinct architecture.
The distinctive green “Sortie” signs appear at every possible exit and everywhere that you can conceive as a path to an exit.
What caught my attention was the frequency of the signs and the variables of the doorways, in what one would expect to be uniform architectural elements. I continued the pursuit of sortie images while visiting other museums.
