The Parking Ticket Emotional Reclamation Project: Guerilla Artist Inserts Artwork into Parking Tickets

April 24, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The Parking Ticket Emotional Reclamation Project (PTERP) is a project recently started in Brooklyn, New York by an anonymous artist (whom we’ll call Dave) that has recently expanded to Boulder, Colorado as part of the Communikey Festival of Electronic Arts. The idea is pretty straightforward: Dave organizes the creation of artworks by fellow artists, children, or anyone that wants to take a stab at dulling the anger/rage an individual encounters when discovering a parking ticket left on their car. After its creation Dave scours the streets covertly stuffing the one-of-a-kind artworks into parking violation envelopes.

Here’s a huge gallery of work recently created and distributed in Boulder. Via email Dave says he doesn’t stick around to see people’s reactions, however he mentions this recent encounter:

I was distributing some final tickets on The Hill in Boulder before I left, and as I was walking away from the car to go into Roma Cafe the dude who’s car it was walked up and had obviously seen me messing with his windshield. I said “You got a ticket but you also got something else” and was walking away. His friend was like “Is that the parking ticket thing?!?!” (They had heard about it). They were psyched. He said it made his day.

To learn more about PTERP you can check out the official website and their Facebook page, or watch the video below.

A newly released video for Manchester Orchestra out of Atlanta, Georgia. As someone who’s experienced a trauma similar to what’s depicted in the video this had my heart pounding by the end. Directed by DANIELS the duo behind the recent dogboarding video.

A graduate project in animation by Lee Sunghwan of Studio Shelter. Though I had trouble discerning a plot exactly, I found myself giggling a few times, this is pretty well done.

I break my 700 post streak of Star Wars-less posts today. This hysterical new advert for the 2012 Passat is too good to pass up.

Christopher Jobson

Metropolis II is a kinetic art installation by Chris Burden featuring 1,200 Hot Wheels. It includes 1,200 custom-designed cars and 18 lanes; 13 toy trains and tracks; and, dotting the landscape, buildings made of wood block, tiles, Legos and Lincoln Logs. Burden estimates that every hour about 100,000 cars circulate the system. Soon to be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or as my friend Gregg will refer to it, “Mecca”.
