On the other hand this work of umm... art at the Bay Street mall in Emeryville is so clear, I can't think of altering a single pixel:

Everything I can say about consumerism, all satire and irony even remotely related to that subject, are dead in the face of this gloating piece of board erected over a clean, nearly geometrically perfect, bland and dull street.
