In the wonderful Artvertiser workshop, Julian Oliver and Damian Stewart guide participants to improve urban reality by replacing billboard advertisements with art. The workshop combines tactical media (adbusting, culture-jamming) with high-tech (augmented reality, computer vision) - and culminates in a virtual exhibition tour in central Helsinki.
Artvertiser Helsinki is co-organized by m-cult and the Gizmology project at the Academy of Fine Art.
