The medium is the message
That's the billboard you see heading east on the BQE just before the Brooklyn Bridge. It's been owned by the Apple iPad for over a year now. I photographed it because it had been finally "bombed." Compared to the high-flying billboards Rambo has claimed, this seemed like an easy target--the proverbial low-hanging fruit--and I wondered if Apple products for some reason enjoyed protected status among the graffiti artists.
But none of that came out. Only a bright white light. That used to signal you were having a near death or out-of-body experience. Now it just means you're checking your email.
