In one of Filthy Lucre‘s latest projects, he added eyes to trees and bushes in the public space. They “eyes” are really just dots painted on while balloons. Both of these photos were taken in Salamanca, Spain.
This video is incredible. One guy dances a silly dance with people all over the world.
In 2006 video game developer Matt Harding took a 6 month trip traveling to 39 countries and made a video of himself dancing at various locations along the way. In 2008 Matt went on a follow-up trip, dancing his way through 42 countries in 14 months, this time inviting people to dance with him. Both of Matt’s trips around the world were sponsored by Stride Gum.
Two agents from Improv Everywhere in New York are traveling to Germany next week to organize a mission in the town of Erlangen for the Arena Festival. Anyone who lives in the area is invited to attend.
Date: Wednesday, June 25, 2008
Time: 1:00pm – 4:00pm
City/Town: Erlangen, Germany
Our friends at Scene Diego have posted their latest mission video.
41 Agents bring Rocky to San Diego. We dress up in gray sweats, run thru the mall, and across downtown showing true Rocky spirit. Mall security called for “backup”, we stopped a tour trolley in its tracks, and had a couple bystanders join in. While nobody was really sure who these loud, energetic people were, they cheered us on until the finish line.
Canadian street artist Posterchild was in New York earlier this month for a special mission. With the help of Jason Eppink and Steve Lambert he installed four pixelator style boxes to give New York Subway advertisement screens an awesome stained glass look.
There will be an Mp3 Experiment happening in Geneva, Switzerland next Thursday. The event is being organized by a local group. See the Geneva Mp3 Games site for more details (helpful if you speak French!)
The Mp3 Experiment was created by Improv Everywhere in 2004. There have been four installments so far in New York, with a fifth planned for later this year.
Artist Bob Snead built a talking ATM which he installs without authorization in public places. He writes:
I took ATM out on the town for several different occasions to all of the typical suburban shopping centers around New Haven, CT and Boston, MA. So this video cuts from suburbaneers’ view, ATM’s view, and a spy view.
I got a ticket from the 5-0h for these “performances”! When we were removing the ATM from the Target parking lot, there were several 9-11 calls made. Apparently people thought we were stealing an ATM. They didn’t realize we were saving him. I think he would have committed suicide had we not been there.
