Tesco Homeplus Virtual Subway Store in South Korea – YouTube

This idea is simply genius. But what happens when some clever hoodlum covers up the milk QR code with a QR code linking you to his malware-ridden porn-serving wordpress blog?

Disposable art. Beautful design & advertising from SXSW, pt. 2: Posters

Some of my favorite posters from SXSW. 

These things get put up all over the place – primarily on circular structural columns, stacking up 4 and 5 layers deep before being peeled off, but soon many areas turn into adhoc bulletin boards.  It can actually be tricky to get good shots of these as they get damaged and abused, which is part of what I found so interesting.  All this effort goes into creating unique images on high-quality stock, only to be used for 5 days, then discarded.
