Amnesty International: Human is not a machine

We are migrant workers, not imported machines
Migrant workers are also human beings

We created an ambient advertising for International Migrants Day, 18th December 2010 to inform the public about the reality of migrant workers with Amnesty International Korea. Many migrant workers enter S. Korea to work. However, Their employers treat them like working machines and forfeit their human rights. Thus, we made life-size boxes used for packing goods and informed the public about the reality in a guerrilla-fashion.

And now we wait for the first smart ass to use 'out-of-the-box-thinking' in his comment. I mean the second smart ass...

Nice ambient idea. I didn't think there is such a problem in S. Korea.

Not creative nor clever. Unfortunately this problem is still a truth, but it has been communicated many times before in the past an in betters ways.

average idea..

visual execution/art direction of human illustration isn't impressive at all. human + hammer + electrical plugs; trying too hard to force the msg across..
