HaBezefer School of Art: Presentation Board

Throwing beauty in the face of hackers--and hate.

Editor's Pick

Each month, dozens of Israeli websites are being hacked by hacker groups and replaced with anti-Israel web pages. The country's HaBezefer School of Art and Advertising worked with McCann Tel Aviv on a project that doesn't sort this problem out, but still makes its point. After noticing that all the hackers used ugly templates to replace sites, it chose 50 hacked sites, had students redesign them to make them more beautiful, and posted them on hacker forums with this message: "We would like to end all cyber wars. But in the meantime--if you must hack our sites, at least leave something beautiful."
