Fill in the Blank: Culture Jamming and the Advertising of Agency
Lambert-Beatty, Carrie
New Directions for Youth Development, n125 p99-112 Spr 2010
This article is a review on billboard liberation and some other projects that develop the idea of talking back or over advertising in a playful and youthful way. In one of them, Ji Lee's Bubble Project, an artist places blank thought-bubble stickers on street advertisements and waits to see what people write on them, completing the work of art and transgression. In other initiative, blank pages with the word "God" were placed around the city in place of advertising, inviting people to complete the prayer/complaint and to participate in a Suggestion Box, a project that collected "suggestions" from people out in the street. A review of playful and youthful ways to "rebel" against the impositions of powers like media and advertising. (Contains 5 figures and 20 notes.)
