killing one ad at a time
New York City is beautiful. But their subways really aren't. The ubiquitous advertising plastered over every possible surface, wall, and object really doesn't help, either. Although sometimes colorful and visually interesting, Street Artist, Jordan Seiler, argues that an overabundance of advertising can be detrimental to your mental health. So, he's created an app that allows you to point the camera to an ad and see artwork instead from local artists. Although perhaps a slightly dramatic stance on advertising in public places, the idea of supporting local artists and advertising their work is a big win.
