Do you remember street art? Ernest Pignon Ernest has put up his first ephemeral piece of art in 1966.
“Sanborn Maps were originally created for assessing fire insurance liability in many areas of the United States. The maps include detailed information regarding town and building information in approximately 12,000 U.S. towns and cities from 1867 to 1970. They are a very useful resource for historical research, planning, preservation and genealogical research.” From Dan Tate´s blog.
Yi-Hsin Tzeng about her magazine project (2009-): “They are too beautiful to be believed; they are too perfect to be trusted. They are so affected that I want to make fun of them. No matter how much luxurious clothing we put on, we still cannot hide our true faces.” Available from this website. Compare to Poster Boys’ billboard modifications .
Hopefully, there will be more works from ‘ZebraTing’ in the streets soon. Slightly progressive and real.
