Last week we posted Parts 1 & 2 of our talk with Juxtapoz Magazine. We're thrilled to share Part 3 with you. In this segment, Marc and I talk about our first Street Art Tour in NYC, and how the public perception around street art has drastically changed over the years. Very interesting. Check it out!
In April 2013 Blake Shaw traveled to the Occupied Palestinian Territory for his first trip to launch "The Bridge", a new telecommunication art project to facilitate real-time artistic collaborations amongst people across borders using 'Nomad.OS' a live-streaming software he is currently developing.
In this video he takes portraits of refugees from Balata, Al-Jalazone, and Al-Am'Ari refugee camps and uses video painting to paint their portraits onto historical sties in the Israeli cities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and the old city of Jaffa in an effort to symbolically return the image of these refugees to their ancestral homes.
Video Painting is a technology developed by Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy aka SWEATSHOPPE that uses custom interactive software, video projection, and electronic paint rollers outfitted with LEDs to create the effect of painting videos on walls. The technology allow [vimeo.com] them to explore the relationship between video, architecture, and mark making and create video collages in real-time.
As part of our celebration of 10 Years of Wooster Collective, we recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Evan Pricco of Juxtapoz magazine at Story in New York to talk about a wide range of topics connected to street art, pubic space, the art market, and more.
For us, the event at Story was a terrific opportutity to share a ton of stories and insights that we rarely talk about in public. We taped the event and are thrilled to share with you the first two parts of of our conversation...
MUST WATCH: Russian artist Petro Wodkins installs a statue of himself "pissing" in front of Brussels's most famous statue, Manneken Pis. This is one of the most bold and daring performances of street art we've seen in a while!
What happens when citizens around the world take control and ownership of an artist's creative vision?
JR, a good friend of the Wooster Collective, explores these questions as part of his ongoing Inside Out project, now the subject of "Inside Out: The People's Art Project", a fantastic new documentary premiering this Monday night on HBO.
JR first conceptualized Inside Out as he began to post his now iconic portraits in locations such as the West Bank barrier wall, which gave these anonymous faces new meaning and importance. The HBO documentary is both a record of JR's call for the world to become part of Inside Out and an exploration of the "power of paper and glue", to borrow JR's expression.
In the film, director Alastair Siddons explores the impact of Inside Out on events both personal and political. In a North Dakota reservation plagued by youth suicides, the project literally gives grieving parents a new perspective on their anguish. In footage taken just after the Arab Spring, we watch as Tunisians participating in the project learn for themselves how quickly making art can become a political statement. The effect is an uplifting testament to the power of street art.
Inside Out: The People's Art Project premieres on HBO this Monday, May 20 at 9 PM EST.
