The limitation of behaviours in public spaces from the government seems to be a common and normal component in modern communities. However, if we observe at different cities with the focus of signs in public areas, we may find that their content is highly sensitive to the urban context, leading us to reflect on the definition of “public space”, and to question the normality of these oppressive public signs. After collecting rich language materials from the streets in field trips and research, we designed a series of posters and stickers, trying to mock the nonsensical governmental road signs/banners in public spaces. We hope that the posters and stickers will serve as a voice from the public that indirectly responds to the authoritative, centralised power from the government.
