The Global ByeBye Gesture
    NMN the NoMoreNukes Cat Hack
    Series of Objects, Installations & Videos
    by Humatic & Partners

    Popular Japanese 'Maneki Neko' Lucky Cat figurines have been significantly hacked:
    The cat's head is turned by 90 degrees which transforms the meaning of the waving gesture from 'welcome' to 'bye-bye'.
    The solar powered statue now holds a yellow-black nuke sign.

    The self-explanatory objects & installations trigger a controversial discussion about touched traditions & violated values. Operating close to Kitsch the NMN figurine gets populized to become a symbol for peaceful & playful protest against nuclear lunacy.
