Spray your tag on West Bank wall!

For 30 Euros, a group of enterprising Palestinian graffiti artists are offering to tag the West Bank wall with your message.

Clip:

It could turn out to be the world's longest graffiti space – the massive concrete barrier separating Israel from the Palestinians.

Over the Internet, a group of Palestinian graffiti artists is offering to spray-paint your personal message on Israel's towering security wall in the occupied West Bank.

It costs 30 euros (NZ$75) per message and they can be as solemn or wacky as you want. Everything goes, except for obscene, offensive or extremist hate speech. Clients get three digital pictures of the finished product.

The 8-metre high barrier of massive concrete slabs is part of a 620-km fence Israel says is intended to keep suicide bombers out, and which can be dismantled at some point in the future when peace reigns. Source

Tunnel with 40,000 LEDs Is the Closest You’ll Ever Get to Light Speed

From Gizmodo:

The name of the installation is Multiverse, and it was installed by artist Leo Villareal in a 200-foot-long tunnel in the National Gallery of Art in Washingtong DC. The entire thing features 41,000 LEDs that animate and move on their own, using randomness to ensure that no one will see the same configurations twice. Multiverse will be on display throughout 2009.

Losar — Tibetan New Year Feb 25th — Worldwide Protest

Today, February 25, 2009, is the date on which Tibetan New Year — Losar — begins. Many Tibetan exiles around the world are observing Losar in a different manner this year. Some are forgoing traditional observances to instead protest human rights abuses by the Chinese government inside Tibet. There are reports that Chinese authorites are effectively making Losar celebrations inside Tibet compulsory, and reactions have led to violent clashes.

The video below shows Christo process of working with resin, magnets, pigments and ferrous metal powders, it's amazing to watch the metals in the resin take on the patterns of the magnetic energies.

 

Art and science recently overlapped in conversations I had with the late Jack Shearer, whose photographs of magnetic imagery (www.nanomagnetics.us) greatly resembled my own abstract compositions. This piece is the first composition with that inquiry in mind. Utilizing different sizes, shapes, and types of magnets of varying strengths, the images came to life by themselves, revealing the energy within them. Correlations between these simple constructions and the forces of natural phenomena that stimulate my imagination and creative expression have already furthered my process of discovery.

A Collection of Newspaper Masthead Clip Art

I love Flickr. While looking for some reference material I came across this excellent collection. The prints look like lino-cuts or wood blocks.

From Oldtasty's Flickrset

This is an outstanding collection of Cultural-Revolution era imagery and propaganda, made available with thanks to Webster University (for use of their scanning station) and Flickr. Translations will be added over time.

The Incredimazing Ellips Ease

Ellips-Ease1.jpg

My friend Brady found this beauty while cleaning out his studio. It's simply amazing! The different typefaces are cool, it must have looked very mod in its day.

 

The 'Engineering Appliance Company' is alas, no longer in business. The San Francisco street address in now condos and a google search returned no results.

 

Got it?

 

 

 

Thanks Brady
