There is a small window between the time when the billboards are shredded and replaced with a fresh ad. I am acting in a sense like a curator, picking and choosing which of the pieces of these billboards to photograph. I find them to be an interesting statement on the visually bombarded times we live in, the transience of time, and how advertising and images affect the human psyche and subconscious mind overall.—Mark Hartman
