Video about Hugh Leeman’s street art social projects

This new video by French videographer Clemence Demerliac, on art with a social conscience, features the work of street artist Hugh Leeman’s social projects and advertising for the homeless through his billboard takeovers and not for profit inner city t-shirt project. 

In removing ad posters and billboards from the inner city streets, Leeman’s high aspiration is to change the ad’s original intent from directing our state of consumption to one that better reflects the people and ideas of our society. Through this recontextualization, he hopes to show not just the subjects, but our society, in a new and dignifying light.

FAEM (Found At E Minor) is a reader-generated video initiative from Lost At E Minor. From cool tech ideas, to inspiring art, music, travel and more. If you have a video (like this, for instance) you think we should feature, then tell us about it!
