Guerrilla art group hacks dozens of Astral info pillars.
The city's new, redesigned info pillars that have been rapidly popping up around Toronto have made plenty of enemies: road users claim the large, flat sides block sight lines, pedestrians say their positioning blocks sidewalks, and many others are concerned about the large amount of space given over to advertisers. A team of artists, cARTographyTO
, hacked into roughly 35 of the signs' ad spaces over the weekend and installed maps, artwork and other visual displays.
