Progress

These signs are hanging in the hall of our big Amsterdam department store the Bijenkorf.
It took me a very long time to decipher the message beside the Chinese language. But if this is progress, I doubt it. More the confusion of today I think. One for signs, signs here.

  1. The word could mean Work in Progress, under Construction or perhaps In Progress, if you are in Beijing or especially Shanghai it is even worst of what is associated with Progress. And everything becomes very superficial.

  7. I can make out some letters next to the Chinese, but can't read the whole word. Perhaps it is digital computer code? Interesting sign.

  8. It becomes an art impression rather than a sign with a message. Lost in translation?

  9. It reminds me of the old dot matrix font which I always found hard to read.

  11. I guess the Chinese and the English mean the same thing... Work in Progress? Though I don't read Chinese... :)
