The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Stained glass video subway ad covers

Craft & Design

by posterchild

Posterchild built four stained-glass effect covers for the HD advertisement screens at some subway entrances in New York. Steve Lambert of the Anti-Advertising Agency writes:

Building on the Pixelator, Posterchild goes a more devout route with a stained glass effect. “Hold Fast Sell Out” was built with 1/2 inch melamine, screwed together and coated with diffusion material – rather impressive construction.

What a way to make something ugly beautiful; I can’t stop staring at the swirling backlit colors.

    I was impressed until they got to the “out” part. It looks more like “sell nut”

    I love the idea of covering ads though.
