Two signs containing rolling "bus blinds" each display 100 names of fictional places found in literature, film, television, comics, and games, from the eighth century BC to 2019. The yellow sign displays places from works made for children; the blue sign displays places from works made for adults. Changing every day, the piece regularly gives the park a new name. Some may be instantly recognizable while others may inspire viewers to search and discover something new.
