Visual Arts, New/Digital Media — Excursion
Brad Bamford's paintings of layered and torn advertisements are presented on billboards and digital signs at several locations in the Exchange District. The paintings are both archaeological sites, full of fragments of information; as well as time capsules, capturing the interests, events and graphic design of the moment and culture they represent. This project questions and re-imagines the place of advertising in public spaces and the urban environment.
