‘My (public) Space’

by Vivien Park

"My (public) Space" is a documentary film by Pilar Damato on the work and mission behind the non-profit art activism group Public Ad Campaign. Led by NYC artist Jordan Seiler, they challenge the legitimacy in outdoor advertising and its invasion of public space through artistic interventions. Through the physical act of taking over ad spaces, the group hopes the public will become more aware of their relationship with public spaces and in turn regain control of the space they occupy.
