International Conference of Critical Geography 6

I am honored to be talking on behalf of PublicAdCampaign and the Heavy Projects at the 6th International Conference of Critical Geography today, August 17th. I will be presenting a paper written by BC Biermann that I helped conceive, and which focuses on the use of Augmented Reality in the reappropriation of public space. While the discussion will focus on AR's ability to democratize media production in our shared environment, it will also touch on the history of PublicAdCampaign and the 10 years of physical alterations we have done.

Literally sitting outside on a wooden bench typing this, I am excited to explore Frankfurt and see if I can find a store that sells black and white paper. While there are few ads here, there are enough for me to get involved and physically reclaim some outdoor commercial media after discussing how to virtually do the same.
