Archive for the ‘wall’ tag
Legendary artist (and my good friend) Kenny Scharf has been a fixture in the art world since sharing an apartment—called the Cosmic Closet—with the late Keith Haring in the 1980’s. Now, Kenny is painting the very same wall that Keith tagged so long ago at the corner of Bowery and Houston in New York City. And in true Kenny form, it’s Groovenian.
The mural coincides with Kenny’s new exhibit, Hot Glue Hullabaloo, at the Hole gallery just a few blocks away. Who needs LSD when you’ve got a glue gun? Trust me, it’s worth the trip.
Seeking an anonymous hookup for hot, public, file swapping? Score! German artist and architect Adam Bartholl has ‘injected’ 5 USB ports into walls throughout New York City.
According to his blog, “Dead Drops’ is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. I am ‘injecting’ USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessible to anybody in public space. You are invited to go to these places (so far 5 in NYC) to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data.”
Check out his blog for a map of locations.
Now my only question is if I want to practice safe swapping, where can I buy a USB condom?
