funeral services ad

Giant drinking straws were placed in waterways, streams and rivers around Kuala Lumpur city. The waterway shown here, for example, is actually the once pristine Ampang River, but it is now so pulluted it looks like a sewage drain. A notice board attached to the giant straw calls the public to vote for compulsory recycling to curb water pollution. This excercise is in conjuction with the Arts and Earth Festival organised by the Global Environment Centre.

Guerilla action, funny

"A group of Guerilla Knitters stormed the U1 in Berlin disguised with knitted beards and armed with knitted cozies, to beautify and soften the harsh interior of the everyday world of commuters. After 3 months of preparation with Stitch N Bitch group, it took us just an hour to install, and the carriage stayed in circulation until around 15:00, when the BVG security unfortunately cut it all to pieces. Despite making those few employees miserable by giving them extra work, I think we cheered up a fair amount of weary travellers on a gloomy January day!"

"I turned the side of an abandoned house in my neighborhood into a giant chalkboard where residents can write on the wall and remember what is important to them. Before I Die transforms neglected spaces into constructive ones where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us." (click for more images)

"Paul "Moose" Curtis creates his art by erasing dirt from public surfaces. British authorities aren’t sure what to make of the artist who is creating graffiti by cleaning the grime of urban life. The Leeds City Council has been considering what to do with Moose. "I’m waiting for the kind of Monty Python court case where exhibit A is a pot of cleaning fluid and exhibit B is a pair of my old socks," he jokes."

Billboard liberated and corporate image rewritten with acting and dressing

"THE PHOTOCOPIER AS A WEAPON OF SUBVERSION -- Increase Self Activity. The billboard artist's goal is to throw a well aimed spanner into the media's gears -- unmask the real corporate activity behind the glamorous image, and to assault the billboard itself, to question its given function of marking out urban geographies (areas defined for consumption, the territory devoted to the car, the space set aside for leisure that always seems to lack meaningful participation)."

"Here’s the billboard we targeted. The brooding ego and well-shaven torso of the popular musician of the month. -- First, we covered over the text of the ad with paint -- There’s a type of spraypaint that turns the painted surface into a chalkboard, just like the chalkboards in a classroom. -- Not everyone is interested in participating, but a lot of people are eager to add their own interpretation of what the billboard model might be thinking."

Hijacking the billboard for own message
