Making The Invisible Visible

Last week a new poster installation by Kirsten Rutherford and Lisa Jelliffe, Making the Invisible Visible, hit the streets of London.
It is a collaboration with the Berlin-based, three-person photographic street art collective Mentalgassi in support of Amnesty International.  

The London poster campaign is specifically in support of Troy Davis, a man described as having “been on death row for 19 years in the USA, despite serious doubts about his conviction.”

The posters, depicting a close-up Davis’s face, are mounted on fence railings that disguise the posters so that the face behind the bars is revealed only when viewed from an angle.
