Rasael—Messages

Emrany/Köppl/Zacek

The city of Amman is scattered with billboards: advertisements, information, announcements, portraits of the King and his family, etc. are on display all over the city.

Following this occurrence, the overflow of information and its never changing messages, the artists decided to surprise people with unexpected messages, distributed throughout the city. These messages aimed to wake people up who follow their daily routine, inviting them to take a pause in the busy and repetitive movements of life.

The original idea was to spread these messages in huge letters throughout the city, on walls, houses etc, but for these interventions we did not get permission from the municipality.
Therefore, these ideas were materialized on photoshop and postcard printing.
