    not necessarily pointless, interesting art project making people pay more attention to their surroundings… would have made a great ad campaign for amnesty international

    Very cool! What an amazing way to get people to wake up a little to what’s around them. And it’s so obvious, but it’s the first time I think I’ve seen anyone do it. Nice work.

    I actually own one of the stickers. It was inside of Klebstoff #2 Stickermag

    i think there is an amnesty campaign, on the floor and text tattoo in fingers… maybe he did it…

    @Enkhsaihan – Your comment is pointless

    Neat idea, but why the profanity (in the video)?

    Love the concept behind these, something slightly disturbing about them though. (as posted above) I would also love to see how ‘Joe public’ react to them.
