Times Square to Art Square is a very complex project with a simple goal: to turn all advertising on Times Square into art.

"We want to convince the world that advertising space should be about more than promoting goods and services, that those spaces could also be used for creative expressions. We will invest the donations into the realization of Art Square, while searching for cooperative Billboards owners and billboard advertisers."

Brilliant.

I Wish This Was by Candy Chang lets people have their say about the vacant buildings in their city. An easy tool to voice what they want and where they want it. Just fill them out and put them on abandoned buildings and beyond.
The stickers are custom vinyl and they can be easily removed without damaging property. It’s a fun, low-barrier tool to provide civic input on-site, and the responses reflect the hopes, dreams, and colourful imaginations of different neighborhoods.

Graffiti Research Labs’ SVG2BVG uses custom computer vision software to detect graffiti tags, sending the ensuing shape to a diy laser cutter and outputting the tag as a stencil in realtime.

"The stencils are conveniently sized for the television screens in the Berlin U-Bahn system - allowing you to go all-city and create cheap, non-permanent, light-based graffiti in the comfort of your own transit system.”
