UK street artist Contra installed a life-size cut out of Prime Minister Gorden Brown on the south bank opposite The Houses of Parliament in London. Also attached was a speech bubble made with dry-erase board material, allowing each stranger to add his own voice. The video is a touch long, but has some very nice moments. We love projects like this that encourage public participation. Reminds us of Ji Lee’s bubble project.
Imbue recently set up his controversial “Drug Vend” sculpture on Brighton Pier in the UK. Cocaine and Heroin for pocket change? What a deal! Don’t forget you can buy ideas from vending machines as well.
Given how easy it is to find the facelesspeople.com website through Google I think it is amazing that there has been so much Faceless People coverage and so little realisation that the Faceless people are part of a clever viral marketing rather than a political statement or art!
