one of the things that i like the most about Internet is that many times random surfing gets you to read or watch something, which is either an illustration or a development of some thought that crossed your mind at a certain time and that you completely forgot about.
i came across this video which explores the relationship between street art and corporate advertising in public space. and i remembered how much i thought about this myself, starting from a discussion in the Czech Center focused on the difference between artistic billboards and commercial billboards. LorcanFinnegan explains: "A man, trapped in the confines of a corporate poster, tries to escape and become part of the street art on the opposite wall. Although the street art is free, it is condemned and usually destroyed to make way for advertising, a risk he is willing to take to be with the stencilled girl on the other side"
