Leste o Leste? (Did You Read the East?)

Description (in English): 

An urban intervention project involving electronic billboards and user-selected graffiti.

"Conceived in the context of a broad urban intervention, Did You Read the East? dialogued with the guerilla teactics of graffiti. Participants were invited to choose e-graffiti that I had created--a series of six video-poems, composed in stylized fonts--and "invade" the programming of the electronic pantel. The graffiti appeared among advertising, mixing and remixing themes that included violence, social hypocrisy, love, and lyricism."
