“Write about the blue and white sign around the college” when I heard this in class, it didn’t even click to me. Since I am an exchange student and just got here last week, I was too busy to care about what is interesting on campus. But after I knew about the sign from the class and walked around the campus, I finally realized that there are so many signs that start with mirrored California. If this homework did not come out, it might have taken about 3 months to notice them which is three forth of my exchange program. Then of course, once I met these interesting signs, I can’t help wondering the meanings.
It was actually a bit hard for me to search the definition of the signs on internet because I did not ave any background knowledge about this. I first put “blue and white sign pitzer” on google, and there was nothing interesting on the result. And then I kept searching for it in different words, got the meaning at long last.
This art project by Edgar Heap has much more meaningful and touching background than I thought. To be honest, although I came to the states to study, I wasn’t interested in American culture at all but this experience, knowing about the art made me want to learn about culture or history which will make my exchange program more significant.
