2-HB utilizing defunct billboards in PVD RI

Description +

2-HB is a public art installation using defunct billboards in downtown Providence, RI. At the time the city was re-routing interstate 95 to the edge of the city, leaving a trail of infrastructure behind. This would ultimately bring massive change to the flow of the city but at the time felt never ending. Working with two identical billboards a few blocks apart, our goal was to reconnect this space and make light of the construction headache. The pencil became the perfect visual metaphor of the process happening below. The image lines up across the landscape from a sidewalk blocks away.
