For NuArt 2012 I personally took back 33 advertising locations in the Downtown Stavanger city center. 30 of these were freestanding or bus shelter advertisement and 3 were street level billboards. The bus shelters and freestanding advertisements were taken back by JC Decaux within 12 hours but the hit resulted in some good coverage in the local newspaper and some local dialogue about the issue. Oddly the night after my images were removed all of the advertisements that had replaced my work turned themselves upside down. The street level billboards remained intact for at least the 4 days after I installed and before I left Stavanger.
