Berlin activists hijack DOOH projection system

Objecting to a new installation of projected digital media on the Berlin underground, a German-based art / activism collective calling itself “post” has come up with an inventive way to disrupt the projection in a non-destructive manner. A combination of mirrors, to break up the video image; magnets to attach the device to the projector mounting; and duct-tape to build the chassis, were used to deploy the devices.

We would like to point out that InAVate does not condone these activities, however creative they are, but it does suggest that the growth of digital display devices outdoors is not universally welcomed!
