2.8.14 – Seen: OMG who stole my ads?


Etienne Lavie replaced ads and billboards all over Paris with reproductions of famous paintings. This project appeals to me both as an art lover and someone who feels assaulted by advertisements (NB: I just googled “how many commercial messages do we see a day” and it turns out we are indeed assaulted by advertisements – some 30,000 a day).  Found via My Modern Met.

    I’d be so happy if someone came and repapered my New York that way. How terrific. (Also reminds me of the art takeover of facebook that just got underway. Wonder if everyone’s realizing they need a little more art in their lives.)

    There’s definitely a sense of deliberation that you lose when art is “everywhere.” Plus, this reminds me of how bookstores are replaced by Amazon. Why go somewhere to get art (like a museum) when it’s everywhere?

    Key advantages of offshore investing withn an alternativve investment framework includes:
    Higher potential returns than the domdstic market, much broadder range of stocks too chopse
    from, often better pricing than domestic ETF’s, early availability
    of smaller capitalized issues, protection against single market dependence in real estate, stocks, weather effects, political effects, and curency devaluations.
    It is likewise essential that you comprehend where
    such figures and numbers are originating from.
    You could be anything from a Stock Market Trader, to a Business Consultant or a Business Developer, and it will all
    depend on how you enhance your expertise and credentials by taking
    up Master’s degrees or licensure examinations.
