Fun With Vernacular Architecture: "Great Firewall of China" Surrounds Google H.Q.

Well played, BLF. The infamously culture jamming Billboard Liberation Front joined forces recently with art/ tech collective monochrom to build a "Great Firewall of China" at Google's Mountain View H.Q. A piece of not-so-subtle vernacular architecture (if you will) yields a not-so-subtle statement on China's rather fascist restrictive relationship with the Internet— and Google's compliance with it. Love.
