GOOD is offering a challenge called Islands for Islands. Good is asking you to pick an ugly traffic island in your city and spruce it up—either in Photoshop or in reality. Add a bench or a sculpture, plant some flowers, whatever you can think of to make that neglected pedestrian junkspace more hospitable. The winner of Good’s contest will get a vacation to the Caribbean island of Dominica.
Could our 5th and Mass intersection present the perfect opportunity for a photoshop savvy resident to produce a high caliber contest entry? The orange cones should provide a sufficiently ugly “before” photo.
