New Firefox Add-On Replaces Websites’ Ads with Art

What if you didn’t have to tune out the ads on websites, but could just replace them with art you actually want to look at? That’s the premise behind Add-Art, a new-ish free plug-in for the Firefox browser that substitutes curated, two-week exhibitions of art for the ads on websites. The current exhibition that’ll appear wherever there used to be annoying ads while you browsed features work from the My Story project out in Portland, Oregon and was curated by Matt Kowal. Here’s what an earlier Add-Art show based on Japanese prints looked like when applied to the Times homepage. (Colectiva)
