I AM HERE / manhole cover

I AM HERE
I AM HERE

Manhole covers can be seen everywhere in our city and they seem monotonous. If they are combined with guide signs or maps, it would be more useful and artistic for visitors.

Without a compass, visitors can also identify their directions easily

The cover’s position is your position!
The way is under your feet!
You don’t know which direction is the North?
It doesn’t matter!
Because YOU ARE HERE!
