We look at billboards and see urban blight, the constant commercialization of our visual field. Artist Stephen Glassman looks at billboards and sees suspended bamboo gardens. He’s launched a Kickstarter campaign for UrbanAir, a prototype project to retrofit one billboard and develop plans to take the project worldwide. They need to raise $100,000 by December 11, 2012.

Watch Stephen’s video below, then visit his Kickstarter page to get more details and contribute to the transformation of our cities.

    This is totally beautiful . Too look up at a garden and see it in a very unusual space, brings an awe and a beauty that takes the place of a former billboard…. A relief, a breath, a sigh….
