Between self-control

and external determination


Society emerges through cooperation and the necessary forms of mutual confrontation and negotiation.


The principles of composition of signs may refer to the relationships that forms a neighborhood. In urban areas private and public interests are confronted in a unique way. They are not only propagandistic support calls, but also stage private wishes, desires and feelings. Public and institutional concerns behave as individual messages, individual interventions are presented in a official-looking style.

Rule differences

for winners and losers


If we consider the regulatory signs in public space, the impression arises that the rules apply to all people equally. If in a park it is is forbidden to drink alcohol, to take a sunbath, to smoke or to carry weapons, those wont worry, who possess their own parks. Although the rules apply to everyone, they affect people to varying degrees.
