50 Illicit Swings Hung Across Los Angeles

June 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

In his spare time San Francisco resident Jeff Waldman started hanging swings in various locations around the city. These guerilla swings caught the attention of the Awesome Foundation which awarded him a $1,000 grant to hang 50 more, a project he captured in this great new video (music by Penguin Cafe Orchestra). The project has since grown a bit encompassing swing installations in Los Angeles and in the Marshall Islands, and with our help he’s heading south to Bolivia to hang a couple hundred more.

Liquid Bricks

June 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This wonderful video arrived in my inbox from Benjamin Boré who created this perfectly executed liquid brick installation as part of a collaboration at Raum à La Box in France. Meant to “question the harshness of the city” the idea is really quite simple, to embed a water-filled pouch beneath the city streets, and the effect is pretty charming, especially for the kids clamoring all over the thing. Music by Mansfield Tya. Thanks Benjamin!

Ridiculously detailed spray-paint and stencil portraits by Kris Trappeniers

June 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I just discovered the work of Belgium-based Kris Trappeniers who describes himself as a “paper sculptor”. His delicately cut stencils are among the most complex I’ve ever seen, the twisting, curving line work creating these amazing portraits that are unbelievably finished with spraypaint.
