Jesus or Hello Kitty

Jonas Grinevičius must have been a very bored panda last week, so he entertained himself by assembling a collection of hi-jacked ads, signs, and objects in the public sphere. A time-honored practice dating back to grade school, private citizens are known to alter public signs for humorous effect – and we were happy to see a collection over there at the website Bored Panda.

There’s the disgruntled laid-off worker who selectively illuminated the company name on the side of a building, the community which created their bike lanes with chalk, and the military billboard corrected to show the actual motivating drive of today’s corporate war-makers. Each, in its own way, is an example of citizens re-claiming the right to public space and weighing in on the messages we encounter daily. Keep an eye out for Men Tworking!
