City Wipeout Pasi Kolhonen

Régine of wmmna points to an interesting approach on everyday visual pollution by architect and researcher Pasi Kolhonen.His City Wipeout installation reveals just how many images, texts and signs we find in our everyday environment. The installation consists of pictures which unveil an ordinary face of the city centre. The pictures are reflected one-by-one on the wall. The user interface allows the spectators to wipe the view clean of everything but the advertisements, signs or logos. All that remains is the blanket of advertising that covers the entire city. That blanket is not always noticed although it is constantly present in our daily life.
