He showed a series of images that were done by an artist called ‘True’ that we actually stickers that replaced all of those information style stickers that you always find in subways. We have them here in Sydney, and he mentioned that people don’t really pay attention to them unless they are bored. So when their eyes rested on these stickers, it took them a moment before they actually realised that they were different.

PS True is his alter-ego.
