Making the invisible, visible – Mentalgassi for Amnesty

We did an article on this great street art project a year ago, and when the lovely people of Amnesty asked us to feature the ‘sequel’ well, we are featuring it again!

The installations use special lenticular fence posters. Launched in London last year to highlight the case of Troy Davis, this year the campaign can be seen in 26 locations across 6 European cities.

Each installation depicts a close up of an individual’s face. The image is invisible from front on, only becoming visible to those approaching the fence. A plaque on each site alerts passers-by to an Amnesty International website where they can take action in support of each of the individuals featured.

Check out this video to see it in action.
