Visual artist Jennifer Bolande took on the ambitious project of replacing billboards in the area with photos of the mountainous landscapes they blocked, and it sends an important social message.

Visible Distance / Second Sight, as the project is known, features ‘vanishing’ billboards that are designed to be seen from a moving car.
