  1. This is a clever and potent project. The fact that it’s a series of seemingly disjointed advertisements makes it especially effective. I’m curious, though, whether or to what extent, the community signed off on this. I can imagine neighbors taking issue with some of the messages, particularly the pope/pedophile ad. Then again, they’re all starting points for debate.

  2. I wasn’t able to find any information about the process, or really a whole lot about Ad Hoc Art, the arts organization that’s somehow involved in this project.

    If it makes any difference, this post only shows a small part of the entire installation, just the one part that I thought was interesting to share here. So, the over all impact of all the artists’ installations may be different.
