Newest Mediacy Gatescape And A Whole Lot Of Comments

I think someone is upset with us over at Mediacy for our recent posts on their illegal Gatescape operations. Frustrations running high I can only assume, they decided to comment on nearly every post we have made for the past several months. Incredible! It reminds me of the spoof sites setup by NPA after the second NYSAT project. (www.publicadcampaign.org and www.publicadcampaign.net) My favorite comment can be seen here, and suggests that cops should be questioning practitioners of urban DIY initiatives like guerilla gardening, renegade knitting, and public seating infrastructure. Its pretty fantastic.

Last night a PublicAdCampaign reader sent me this image of yet another illegal Mediacy Gatescape. It seems like they are popping up everywhere lately and I think that means it is time to start building a map. Each new location we find will be put on this map, allowing us to visualize the breadth of this newest problem. Please help us by sending in your imagery and addresses.

If they are going to cover the gates wth ads, they should cover the whole thing. This doesnt fit so well and could look better. Or if you know them Jordan, tell them to make a deal with the city to paint them first before covering. So at least they dont look so crappy. Not sure what's worse, ads for tv shows or grimy, grafitti covered shutters?

Contrariwise, I am completely sure that ads for TV shows are worse than grime and graffiti. The thought of every store front in this city covered with massive, illuminated, jarring, contextless, tasteless, insipid, eye-grabbing ads makes me shudder with revulsion. The thought of every store front in this city covered by grime and graffiti just makes me a bit glum and disappointed. My brain has better things to do than filter out ads.
