And here is a longer one about the 6 street art pieces that were created specifically for the Copenhagen show.

App removes outdoor advertising with AR

The idea is interesting. Only problem is that to remove the ad, you have to take out your phone and point it to the ad before “removing” it with AR. This means spending quite a lot of time looking at ad and thus doing the complete opposite of the intended purpose. But still, it’s a relevant experiment and of course one that again shows how annoyed people are with bad advertising.

You gotta love Google! As part of their “general” Art Project they’ve created the Street Art Project to preserve art that often disappears (through decay, cleaning etc.). The project has around 100 exhibitions and 5000+ images, and includes maps, videos and much more.
