Parking Garage Tennis

Artist Jorge Ma├▒es turned a parking deck into a tennis court as part of a project for the Royal College of Art in London.

“Park, Set and Match” is Jorge’s misreading of London’s supermarket parking systems, transforming them into his own tennis tournament. These huge spaces, legally private property, are monitored by CCTV cameras and security guards, and offered for free to the clients to make shopping easier. To get into the game you need only buy some water and fruit. This will allow you to legally occupy the parking space for 2 hours. You can then set up your tennis match, which will be “televised” by the CCTV cameras, a public source recording allowing players to obtain a copy of their match through the Creative Commons Act.

Aerial Philanthropy

GuerilLA, the Improv Everywhere-offshoot in Los Angeles, recently put up their newest mission, Aerial Philanthropy. The group threw dollar bill airplanes off of a parking deck in Los Angeles by the ArcLight Theatre. You’ll notice Skylar Stone randomly happened to catch one of the bills.
