The PublicAdCampaign Will Augment Your Reality

   (photo by Becki Fuller)

On Sunday evening, Jordan Seiler’s PublicAdCampaign, in collaboration with The Heavy Projects, began the Beta testing phase of the Augmented Reality Advertising Takeover.  With the use of a cell phone or iPad and a specially designed app, physical objects (in this case, ads) in the public space are transformed into Augmented Reality triggers, effectively layering your environment with virtual content that looks as if it is physically there in front of you.  One minute you are looking at a “Cowboys and Aliens” poster, the next you are gazing at the art work of Ron English.    And where else would be better to test this technology than in Times Square, an area over run with advertising, massive screens, and the highest pedestrian count in all of New York City?!  As our gang of augmented reality seekers dodged taxi cabs and tourists, we saw Times Square transformed into an open air gallery, featuring not only the art work of Ron English, but also Poster Boy, John Fekner, OX, and dr. d.

Back in 2008, Open Space Gallery hosted the first installation of Electric Windows, a day of live painting, music, local food and fun, in Beacon, NY. The lineup of artists included favorites from both the street art and graffiti world such as Cycle, Pink, Ron English, Elbow Toe, Michael DeFeo, and Chris Stain. This year’s group of artists is an impressive mix of returning & new faces, many of whom I look forward to seeing in action for the first time!

Beyond The Street Book Launch Party at Deitch Projects

Thursday night was the New York launch party for Patrick Nguyen and Stuart Mackenzie’s fantastic new book Beyond The Street: The 100 Leading Figures in Urban Art. If you don’t have a bad back or weak arms, I highly suggest that you pick one up (this beast weighs about 5-1/2 pounds). Even if your book collection is a small one, this tome definitely has a place in it and is bound to be a new classic.

Artists, curators, and contributors such as Dzine, Elbow Toe, Gaia, Saber, Ron English, Logan Hicks, MOMO, Faile, Sweet Toof, WK Interact, Jose Parla, Jonathan LeVine, Patti Astor, Hargo, Butterfly, Mikeion, Marc & Sara Schiller, Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant were all on hand to sign books. I am also proud to say that a photo of mine was included in the Swoon section of the book – though I definitely let a few people down when I had the sad duty of informing them that I was not in fact Swoon.

Welling Court Mural Project

Welling Court (photo by Becki Fuller)

Yesterday, members of the Welling Court neighborhood in Queens and a veritable who’s who of the street & graffiti world came together via Ad Hoc Art for a day of eating, dancing, painting & pasting. Wanting to beautify their neighborhood walls and enliven their surroundings, the ethnically diverse melting pot welcomed artists representing over 50 years of the street art movement to do the job. Participating artists include: Alice Mizrachi, Beast, Chris Mendoza, Chris Stain, Celso, Cern, Cey Adams, CR, Cycle, Dan Witz, Darkclouds, Daryll Peirce, Don Leicht, Free5, Gaia, Garrison & Alison Buxton, Greg Lamarche, John Fekner, Lady Pink, Leon Reid, Matt Siren, Michael De Feo, Mr. Kiji, Pablo Power, Peripheral Media Projects, R. Nicholas Kuszyk, Ron English, Royce Bannon, Sofia Maldonado, Swoon, TooFly, Tristan Eaton, and Veng RWK.

If you want to see the walls for yourself, a searchable address is 11-98 Welling Court, Queens, NY 11102. The project begins at the intersection of Welling Court, 30th Avenue and 12th Street and extends north along 30th Avenue and then east along Main Avenue, across the street from the Two Coves Community Garden.

Willoughby Windows v2.0

Garrison & Alison Buxton of Ad Hoc Art are back in downtown Brooklyn for the second year in a row, bringing us their latest installation of Willoughby Windows.

This year’s lineup includes C.Damage, Chris Mendoza & Pablo Power, Daryll Peirce, Faust, Hellbent, Jef Aerosol, Joe Iurato, Laura Lee, LogikOne, Ron English, Skewville, and Thundercut.
