Installation in public space in Helsinki

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the infamous "Stop Töhryille"(Clean City)-campaign of the City of Helsinki that aims to remove any kind of visual or textual intervention in a public space by a private person, this work illustrates the campaigns perverse logic by denying safe pedestrian access for the sake of keeping an electric box clean.

Text on the sign in english:
