Bob Partington hat aus ein paar einfachen, analogen Komponenten einen Graffiti Koffer gebastelt, mit dem sich undercover Stencils sprühen lassen. Anzug und Krawatte sind optional.

Unfortunately, one of New York’s most popular art forms happens to be illegal. Fortunately, @bobparti has figured out an inconspicuous way to keep the authorities at bay. The stencils and the colors are configurable. The suit and tie that would pull off the look are entirely optional.

„Instant Art Career“ von Niklas Roy & Kati Hyyppä


YouTube: Instant Art Career (via rebel:art)

Mal wieder eine schöne Installation von Niklas Roy, der in Zusammenarbeit mit Kati Hyyppä für das Katowice Street Art Festival den Kunstbetrieb ein bisschen auf die Schippe genommen und einer Menge Menschen ein Lächeln ins Gesicht gezaubert hat. Mehr auf seiner Seite:

There are many artists in this world, but also many people who could be artists, although they are not. These people might just be stuck in their daily business, being unaware of the exciting possibility to lead the prestigious life of a professional artist. We tackled this issue at the Katowice Street Art Festival by providing anyone with the opportunity to become an artist instantly. For that purpose, we constructed a “Public Painting Machine” and installed it inside a gallery window. People on the street could paint with the machine by pulling on ropes which were hanging outside. The machine bridged the gap between ordinary street life and the glamorous world of art. It launched hundreds of art careers and created skyrocketing fame, which culminated in cash revenue for the artists… Niklas Roy: Instant Art Career

Eine gepixelte Mädchen-Skulptur am Bahnsteig


Maya – Pixelated Sculpture by Luke Jerram from lukejerram on Vimeo.


YouTube: Maya – Pixelated Sculpture

Luke Jerram hat seine Tochter zu einer Skulptur vervoxelt und am Bahnhof in Bristol aufgestellt, mehr dazu auf seiner Webseite. Ich hätte gern noch ein paar Reaktionen von Passanten gesehen – oder sind die in Bristol einfach alle so abgeklärt? (via Prosthetic Knowledge)

A young girl can be seen standing alone at the end of the train station platform. Who’s she with? Is she travelling alone? Engrossed in her own world, she is still and focuses on the phone she carries. As a concerned member of the public approaches, her form appears to digitize and fragment into cubes. Maya is a sculpture which acts as a three-dimensional pixilated portrait. As with a heavily pixelated two dimensional image made of squares, from a distance the sculptures can be easily read. As the viewer gets closer the object appears to fragment into cubes. The artwork is installated on platform 1 at Bristol Temple Meads train station…

Die ultimative Anarcho-Karre

anarcho-car-1anarcho-car-2anarcho-car-3
Ich war jahrelang per Mitfahrzentrale unterwegs und hab so einiges gesehen. Ein Traumwagen wie dieser dezent gepimpte bzw. gepunkte Renault 5 war leider nicht dabei. Im Tumblr „Protest and Survive“ gibt’s auf drei Postings verteilt noch viel mehr Fotos mit schönen Details: hier und da und dort. (via Doktorsblog)

I made all the paintings with stencils, my car is my first medium!
For the cops, before painted it they arrested me very often, so I decided to give them a good reason to arrest me, but their reaction is often very polite and impressed, many congratulations… that’s a strange feeling for me I must confess…!
Moreover I live near the ZAD in France, an autonomous area against the construction of a big airport in France, we are winning this struggle, that’s fantastic, this is the biggest “open sky“ squat in Europe,inform yourself about that guys, your’e all welcome! so cops know very well my car ahah!

CCTV-Geburtstagsparty für George Orwell

George-Orwell-George-Orwell-Birthday-Party-
Am 25. Juni wäre George Orwell 110 Jahre alt geworden. Zum Geburtstag haben ihm in Utrecht ein paar Leute eine kleine CCTV-Party geschmissen, die Partybilder gibt’s hier(via Just)

On tuesday the 25th of June, to celebrate the 110th birthday of George Orwell, surveillance cameras in the center of the city of Utrecht were decorated with colorful party hats! George Orwell is best known for his book ‘1984’, in which he describes a dystopian future society where the populace is constantly watched by the surveillance state of Big Brother. By putting these happy party hats on the surveillance cameras we don’t just celebrate Orwell’s birthday. By making these inconspicuous cameras that we ignore in our daily lives catch the eye again we also create awareness of how many cameras really watch us nowadays, and that the surveillance state described by Orwell is getting closer and closer to reality.

Schöner Hack von .wav (we are visual) in Hamburg – der Stadt, die gerade für über eine Dreiviertelmilliarde die Elbphilharmonie bauen lässt.

Das Entlüftungsgitter war in den letzten Jahren einer von wenigen Orten in St.Pauli, wo Obdachlose sich aufwärmen und im Winter erträglicher aufhalten konnten. Im Frühjahr wurde die Abluft so modifiziert, dass seitdem ein Aufenthalt dort unmöglich gemacht wurde.
