Means to an End
Since the global pandemic began in 2020, Regula Ehrliholzer, together with René Wäger, has documented hundreds of places. These diverse and very specific locations all have one thing in common: attempting to communicate the latest rules of conduct to the public. The result is an abundance of arrows, lines, points, boxes, footprints, installations, counting systems, disinfection stations, and more, mostly executed by individuals without any professional background or experience in how to visually communicate this matter. The massive collection of images reflects the virtually endless variety of efforts and solutions which are now a familiar part of our everyday surroundings, and tells the story of a time when people had to take wayfinding and signage into their own hands.
