"You don't have Adblock!": the artist imagined what life would look like without advertising

Categories: Design and Architecture | Photo project

Spanish photographer Jose Perez Higuera imagined what the world would look like without advertising: with the help of a photo editor, he removed all the banners, signs and advertisements from the streets and highways, leaving clean canvases in their place. 

The project is called Public Spaces — the artist deliberately chose a multi-valued combination that can mean both " public space "and"public spaces".

"You don't have Adblock!": the artist imagined what life would look like without advertising

As an epigraph to his work, Jose quotes the French journalist Robert Guerin:

"You don't have Adblock!": the artist imagined what life would look like without advertising

Meanwhile, advertisers are constantly finding new places and coming up with even more aggressive tricks to grab our attention. And all this is at the expense of our public space.

And we don't offer any resistance. It's time to change that and get rid of the invasion of our privacy."

Jose Perez Higuera
