The Invisible-5 audio project, which highlights environmental hazards along California's Interstate 5, is featured in the July issue of Metropolis: Not Just Another Roadside Attraction

"While commuters and truckers cruise along I-5 at high speeds, there is nothing tangible to alert them to the poisonous messes -- and the typically low-income minority communities fighting to have them removed -- just to the east and west all along the route. However, if you download the audio files and follow the cues (typically an exit sign or another prominent landmark) from the Invisible-5 Web site, the mundane landscape comes alive with the voices of resident activists articulating not only their struggles against major polluters but neighborhood histories, personal anecdotes, and compelling insights into what it is that makes a place home."

How about Invisible-75?
