Double Happiness Billboard Swing Set

March 18, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Architect Didier Faustino created this epic swing set out of a converted advertising billboard for the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Bi-City Biennial of Urbanism and Architecture.

Double Happiness responds to the society of materialism where individual desires seem to be prevailing over all. This nomad piece of urban furniture allows the reactivation of different public spaces and enables inhabitants to reappropriate fragments of their city. They will both escape and dominate public space through a game of equilibrium and desequilibrium. By playing this “risky” game, and testing their own limits, two persons can experience together a new perception of space and recover an awareness of the physical world.

HOT TEA

March 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Work from Minneapolis street art duo HOTTEA, who decided to explore alternate avenues of guerilla art after being arrested for spray-paint graffiti. Via mplsart.com:

The HOTTEA project developed after a trip to jail, but it was also heavily inspired by past experiences: A grandmother teaching the skill of knitting, anti-gay bullying from kids at school, and, most importantly, the relationships that that were developed along the way — negative, or positive. HOTTEA explains, “The HOTTEA project embodies the similarities and differences in all of us. I wanted to base the project off an idea that had room for growth. We are always growing as people and the dynamic between people gives endless possibilities.”

See more of their yarn bombing work on Flickr. (via unurth)

Before I Die

Christopher Jobson

Before I Die is a public installation by New Orleans artist Candy Chang that prompts passersby to complete the sentence “Before I die I want to…” using colored chalk. The installation was filled out in only a day and you can see sections of the completed work here. Erase. Repeat. Awesome. (via creative journal)

Alexander Farto creates etchings with explosives

February 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

After nearly 8 months of testing London-based artist Alexander Farto aka Vhils (previously) unveils this absurdly incredible method for embedding explosives just beneath the surface of walls to reveal artwork. As far as art goes this is one of the most unique things I’ve encountered this year, and my hunch is you’ll see it everywhere in a couple of hours. Make sure you watch the video.
