Off the back of his awesome bus-shelter keys initiative, PublicAdCampaign, Jordan Seiler is taking back the streets and taking on the ads in the virtual world as well as the physical. Pioneering the way for real-life ad blockers, Jordan has spent years researching and mapping out all the New York subway adverts so they can easily be digitally replaced by a carefully curated selection of art from over 50 (and growing) different international artists. We spoke to him to get the lowdown on his subversive new app: NO AD.
Comprised of Skullphone’s hand-painted Digital Media series and sculpture installation, London, XX12 encapsulates the spirit of the XXXXXXX XXXXX within the context of contemporary Great Britain. Reflection paintings depict the United Kingdom’s celebration and tumult. Rectangular paintings show Skullphone’s “advertisement” in rotation with British branding. The adjoining sculpture installation features a work cast from the artist’s foot and adorned with customized running socks — a reflective display of street art, studio practice and marketability — equally representing mankind’s life on the run and the eternal desire for faster, higher, stronger.
Well worth checking out – in the meantime why not trip out to this picture.
