Banana Wall, created by Sagmeister & Walsh features a wall of 10,000 bananas. The green bananas created a pattern against a background of yellow bananas spelling out the phrase; Self-confidence produces fine results.
After a number of days the green bananas turned yellow and the type disappeared. Then, when the yellow background bananas turned brown, the type – and the self-confidence – appeared again, only to disappear when all the bananas turned brown.
Yes, it’s only a whimsical design piece but still rather clever don’t you think?
