Billboards and the Attentional Commons
Posted on March 23rd, 2018
Indianapolis is one of many places struggling with how billboards hijack the attentional-commons for profit. Now, there is legislation in the works. It’s not the best solution, but do you think it moves things in the right direction?
I wonder if digital billboards are ultimately more problematic than static ones, due to the movement/shifting being attention grabbing. Reducing the number of billboards certainly helps, though.
