Billboards are freestanding public advertising structures, traditionally communicating a singular message; they advertise a person, place, thing or idea, to be read within several seconds of passing.

I use representation and scale to mimic a theatrical movie prop sized billboard. Imagery, much like its’ source, is used as a promotional attention-grabber. The bold vertical lines that represent blinds create a sense of voyeurism. This type of ambiguous figurative representation is an effort to subvert advertising.
