Visitors were free to watch whichever and how many interviews they wanted in their own private booth, before "voting" in the fictional referendum themselves by filling out a questionnaire with the same kinds of questions. The project was intended to galvanize people into direct political and social action, though Takayama expressed disappointment at the passivity of local audiences.
A Japanese translation of the text was edited and then sections were recorded by high school girls in the Fukushima region. The postcards featured media images from the Fukushima crisis and on the back, maps and directions to take them to different locations. Each location was a recreation of the media image on the postcard. The performance was a success and extended by popular demand.
