Condo Ads too Much to Bear for Torontonians
Sean Martindale and Martin Reis have graced this blog before with their community based activism projects in Toronto. The most recent being this ad takeover of sorts which reclaims condo ad sandwich boards for public imagery more closely connected to the community and of an entirely uncommercial nature. According to the artists, the sandwich boards advertising luxury condo develoments have over run the city and become an invasive species of thier own. By repurposing them for public communications they are challenging yet another form of commercial invasion into our collective subconscious.
