About Digital Community Billboards

WeSee.Us is a digital community billboard, first executed in Atlanta Georgia in 2008, then later in the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2010.

WeSee.Us is a social tool that uses digital graffiti to build communities. It anonymously and publicly shares live, user-defined, community-driven content in order to communicate, share ideas, and inspire those around you. It seizes the communicative power of large-scale imagery in public space (i.e. billboards) and puts it in the hands of the local community.

WeSee.Us couples together multiple existing technologies: a projector, a special web page, and cell phone cameras. From their cell phones, users can instantly share images from their cell phones by emailing the photos to a specific email address.
