    I think maybe I don’t get art.

    Did you go to the link and see the photo of the two billboards lined up? That’s pretty damn slick I think.

    That’s a very nice little project…I wish they had a more direct way to link the explanation to the installation itself.

    Cute, but the point of it will be lost on 99.9% of people.

    Yeah, I saw the way they line up, and it is indeed cool, but if I saw it I would think “Oh, are they opening a new Staples?”.

    Interesting design, for sure, and I love large scale art and advertisement in cities (something I wish would happen more here, since we certainly have enough blank walls), but I’m not sure if I care for the long winded abstract. A blank page with a picture of each billboard, and the shot of the two together is probably enough to make the point. And there should be a marker for this “designated spot.”
