Based on the theory that the poster, especially when used for advertising, is often a characteristic feature of the country and the society that creates it, for It's the Right Direction we started precisely with the protest placards written by hand with red and black markers, repeatedly and continuously breaking the rules on the display of posters and advertisements. Galvanized iron arrows indicate opposite directions. It's the right direction brings with it monochrome posters in papier-maché, with slogans connected with activities of Greenpeace to protect animals and the environment. The grattifo-drawing, showing an animal, invades the overlapping posters.
