    Hi Taboada,

    here is something that might help.

    Vienna, Austria
    The commercial strip in the Neubau district of Vienna underwent a drastic change of mood in the summer of 2005, when all commercial logos and text visible from the street was covered by bright yellow foil or paper. The coverings were part of a two-week art project dubbed “Delete!” — created by artists Christoph Steinbrener and Rainer Dempf to spark public debate about just how much advertising society can take.
