Artist Sighn has made fifty sets of fluorescent-painted cutouts saying "IT'S OK" as part of his limited edition of one million.

Sighn began cutting the pieces by hand from scrapwood in his workshop last year - see our previous story. He expects the project to take up to 60 years to complete.

"I've been working away on the project, and close to cutting 5,000 so far," says Sighn.

"I know I have a ways to go, but it's such a fun process."

The fluorescent editions are numbered 4,191 to 4,440 and are available in sets of five from Multi Polar Projects.

For every piece sold Sighn plants a tree through the Arbor Day Foundation.

    when useless ideas meet mass production. Why o why? It’s not ok to me…

    I love it and I think it’s ok.
    I like the whole idea of repeating an action. This is beyond the final product.

    If you say ‘it’s ok’ a million times, and make 200,000 sets of five, it’s like a mantra…and when all those people see it, and say it in their minds, maybe it WILL all start to be okay.

    i’m so glad to see that so many people think this is as pointless as i think it is.

    it doesn’t seem so ‘green’ if you consider the use of power tools to create something so useless.

    i’ll be extremely happy if someone can correct me about all this if there is something amazing about it that i’ve missed…
