Some wonderful paper works by Australian artist Miso (Stanislava Pinchuk) who pastes these large pieces around the streets of Melbourne. Via her web site:
Miso is really taken with the idea of art, and especially street art, as being something which binds us as a community. It functions in a very old fashioned way, in that it becomes a way of telling and sharing stories and images, embedding them within the city. Like folk art, it comes to have a very particular, practical function. It brings us together as makers, viewers and consumers, finding new pieces and exploring the possibilities of our cities.

Artist Crystal Gregory created this Invasive Crochet installation as part of a show in New York called Art in Odd Places. Via her web site:
Invasive Crochet challenges gender roles by placing handwork on hardened city surfaces around New York. Crocheting lace doilies onto the razor wire of an abandoned lot for the 14th Street public art show Art in Odd Places, smothering the urban landscape in a soft, decorative, and familiar juxtaposition.
And suddenly I have no idea where I found this. Suffice to say, it was certainly somewhere.

Italian artist Moneyless made these suspended rope sculptures in San Francisco and Oakland for a show at White Walls Gallery. See more over on Unurth.
New work from Anna Garforth (previously). This piece was created in rural Catalunya, northern Spain using masking tape and utilzing a wire fence as a grid.
DDB Paris created these interactive “Escape Machines” for the French travel company Voyages SNCF. The black, monolithic cubes were installed conspicuously in highly-trafficked public places, the only visible prompt a small red button. As a random person approaches they are asked by a mechanized voice from within the box where they would travel to if they could leave immediately, the button is pressed and hilarity ensues. The person is even presented with an enormous faux ticket to their destination.
