Women’s Aid and Ocean Amplify the Violent Face of Abuse with the World’s First Visually Powered DOOH Campaign

The creative employs a unique use of facial recognition technology which allows the interactive billboards to recognise when people actively pay attention to an image of a bruised woman. Those who look at the billboard get feedback via a live video feed that runs along the bottom of the ad as a visual ticker-tape, registering an increasing number of viewers.
As more people take notice of the image of the women, her bruises slowly heal, demonstrating to passers-by that by actually taking notice they can help confront the signs of domestic violence by not turning a blind eye.
