Discarded traffic signs have been collected from the Barbados Ministry of Transport & Works, painted on and placed in an environment with Caribbean migrants. A link is made between signs constructed by the state to control the flow of vehicular traffic and the role of the state in controlling the flow of human traffic. There is an element of the ridiculous and absurd evident in the act of placing these signs in a working environment with these people.
