A very interesting project by Thomas Ball exploring a controversial condition known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity or EHS! . Sufferers of EHS claim that electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) from mobiles, wi-fi and many other common devices make them ill. They report a multitude of symptoms such as headaches, rashes, memory impairment, heart palpitations, sleep disorders, fatigue and nausea. Given that the range and severity of symptoms and their triggers vary significantly, and that many can be attributed to other common ailments, sufferers have been unable to prove the condition as bona fide. Many experts claim the condition is psychosomatic, yet there are a large number of scientists who argue that it is possible for EMF’s to have a biological effect on humans.
Outdoor advertisements are so ubiquitous in New York that they have almost started to become a part of the city’s architecture. Residents of the city are so inundated with these messages that they hardly even seem to notice them anymore.
In these images, blocks of color replace the billboards in order to give a different perspective of the space occupied by these ads. A project by Kaitlin Rebesco
