Interstate Billboard Art Provides Unexpected Moments of Beauty

Kane5

“Healing Tool” is part of Brian Kane’s ongoing series “Art for Commuters.” Designed specifically for people driving along Interstate 93 and 95 in Massachusetts, the installation is meant to provide an unexpected moment of beauty. The billboard displays images which change hourly and daily. At night for instance, high resolutions images of the moon are displayed in relation to the actual moon phases. More images from Kane’s project and short video below!

Poler2

While working on her Master’s Degree at the School of Visual Arts, New York-based art director Michelle Poler was broadly instructed to do one thing every day for 100 days. Taking her assignment to the next level, Poler created the 100 Days Without Fear project.

Poler is now 84 Days in, has since graduated, and is documenting herself facing all kinds of fears from quitting her job and posing nude for a life drawing class, to walking around New York blindfolded. See more images and some video clips from Poler’s inspiring project below!

Here’s this month’s submission post! Thank you for all the submissions to the July Submissions post. This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks to everyone for up-voting work you like, it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here during the month of August. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

 

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
