Title:
Open Air

Author:
Stephen Glassman

Description:
Open Air is an artwork that re-imagines and transforms billboards — a prime symbol of urban commercial messaging — into beautiful, suspended, living bamboo gardens, networked environmental monitors, and a water generation system serving as an urban spring. It is literally a gesture that simultaneously disrupts and serves – a living public clarion call for the most pressing issue of our time. Open Air is taking an infrastructure that’s only providing a vehicle for advertising, and turning it into something that contributes to the city. Once you get this right, technically, environmentally — this is the kind of thing that can be rolled out anywhere.
