This way to Facebook Row: Oxford’s new street signs

Local News News

An anonymous artist has erected a range of social media-themed signs across Oxford this week.

The individual, who goes by the name of A34 on social media platform Twitter, previously hit the headlines when he changed road signs in Didcot to include fictional locations such as Gotham City, Middle Earth, and Narnia earlier this year.

His latest signs included one for “Emoji Alley” in Pembroke Square and “Snapchat End” on the walls of Christ Church College.

Other examples include “LOL Alley”, “Hashtag Walk”, “WTF Lane” and “Like Square”.

A34 took to Twitter after he put the signs up to promote his work with the hashtag ‘#socialmediagig’. He also used the platform to comment on his belief that social media is an illusion.

The works were picked up by the Thames Valley News Twitter account, but the City Council and the Police are yet to comment on the matter.
