true colours

The colour of the clothes you are wearing can be used to show your opinion to questions of political and social interest. Every month a new question could be posed. The climate of public opinion would be obvious in the streets. Who has which opinion? Fashion makes you talk with your neighbour even you don´t know the other. The fact of having different attitudes is assimilated into your visual everyday life - sometimes against one´s will. Tolerance can be practised without talking by accepting the others´ true colours.
