this ain't livin': Taking Landscaping Up, Not Just Out

These billboards create an interesting opportunity for turning away from the traditional narratives about cities as seats of capitalism. It may be legally sanctioned billboard modification but it’s an activist act all the same, and it’s one with tremendous potential applications.

It would create a very different look and feel, and one that would change the very nature of the communities below.
