Park McArthur: These signs of which the title is called Another Word for Memory is Life are hung together in pairs, each sign individually is seven and a half feet tall by ten feet wide, so they are longer than they are tall. They are on a thick aluminum with a bracing on the back, so they sit a couple of inches off of the wall as if they are floating. The entire surface of both of the signs is covered in a warm, dark brown color with a white half-inch border around the entire sign.

The edges themselves are rounded so they are not sharp 90 degree angles. The signs are hung together behind the welcome desk of the Museum or the ticket desk of the Museum and inside the gallery spaces as well.
