About Open Collab:

“ ... The workshop is intense, however it should be of course be enjoyable. It will demonstrate what we are capable of achieving when we work together to reach a common goal. More than the resulting collaborative wall graphic, the most important aspect of the project is the working process. Good luck, and please be sure to let us know how you get on.”

Project: Open Collab
—Vietnamese Traffic


It’s like an adventure, and risking your life just to cross the road in Vietnam. But believe me, no one will crash into you.

I was born and raised in Vietnam. Like many other Vietnamese people, I have enough "masterful" skills to participate in the crazy traffic here. Vietnam's streets are busy because we don't have many types of public transport, and of course the main vehicle is motorbikes. As a result, many funny stories were created in a uncanny way.

Through the Open Collab workshop, I wanted to explore the humorous perspectives of people on the subject. How do 34 people come together to collaborate to tell the same story? More than 300 posters contain comprehensive information on all aspects of bustling traffic, presented in a fun and stimulating way.
