Artists hack commerce, night sky

A conceptual artist proposes to replace blocked browser ads with art, according to the marketing blog, Reveries. The software's author, Steve Lambert, is quoted in Reveries saying, "Why reinvent the wheel when you can insert a gearand make it run backwards?”

Lambert is a fellow at Eyebeam, which describes itself as an art and technology center offering a common working environment for artists and technologists to pursue digital experimentation. Some of its work, including some awesome art on a city-sized canvas, may be seen in this video.
