Awesome Video Of The Day: Running on Seeds Ai Weiwei Protest at Tate Modern

 

On May 1st  three american art students decided to jump the barriers surrounding Ai Weiwei’s Sunflower Seeds piece at the Tate modern’s Turbine hall. This action was in protest against the barrier, against the original intentions of the work being inhibited by health and safety (originally museum visitors were to walk on the seeds), to support the release of Ai Weiwei by the Chinese government, and promote freedom of speech and art. The biggest surprise in the video comes when dozens of other museum members joined the three students in a spontaneous group protest. Now that’s power to the people! Watch the full video after the jump!

Shannon Partridge’s Behavioural Enrichment

Shannon Partridge’s Behavioural Enrichment series is a response to the curious worlds of the zoo exhibit and the set of the mid-century modern interior design photograph. She has merged imagery to draw comparisons between these staged sets, focusing on American mid-century interior design and Western zoos exhibits, to emphasize the theatrical artifice of both environments.

Evol’s Electric Box Interventions

I first saw these a few months back and slept on posting them. But after bumping into them again I had to share them with my fellow cult members.  Street artist Evol has redecorated those ugly electric boxes and other utilitarian outdoor structures into mini skyscrapers and apartment complexes. My favorite piece is the planter that is turned into a section 8 housing unit complete with tiny graffiti. See that and more after the jump!

Dorothy & The Casualties Of War Toy Soldiers

 

Design collective Dorothy brings the hell of war to your toy chest. In July 2009 Colorado Springs Gazettea published a two-part series entitled “Casualties of War”. The articles focused on a single battalion based at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, who since returning from duty in Iraq had been involved in brawls, beatings, rapes, drunk driving, drug deals, domestic violence, shootings, stabbings, kidnapping and suicides. Returning soldiers were committing murder at a rate 20 times greater than other young American males. A seperate investiagtion into the high suicide rate among veterans published in the New York Times in October 2010 revealed that three times as many California veterans and active service members were dying soon after returning home than those being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. We hear little about the personal hell soldiers live through after returning home.
