Kunstrasen is the German word for artifical turf but you could also interpret it as art turf. It’s also the name of Sebastian Neitsch and Jan Bernstein their robot. You can send any vector based artwork to the robot and it will then burn that design into the grass. You can see it at the exhibition Paraflows 09: Urban Hacking in Vienna starting this Friday.

Sorry, the next one is in German. A rough translation would be “I can’t be amazed anymore”. You actually need to know that “Ich komm in das Staunen gar nicht mehr rein” is a variation of a German saying: “Ich komme aus dem Staunen gar nicht mehr raus”. Thanks to comments of Silvia and Mario, I can give you a better translation for Bronco’s piece: “I can’t get into the amazement anymore” (Silvia) or “I can’t even start to be amazed” (Mario). The translation of the orginal saying would be “I can’t stop to be amazed” (Mario).
Of course it’s a pity when you have to explain a joke, sorry for that.
Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris is a study depicting the stylistic diversity found in Parisian graffiti tags. Evan Roth photographed over 2400 graffiti tags in Paris and archived, tagged and sorted them by letter. Then he filtered out the 10 most used letters (A,E,I,K,N,O,R,S,T and U) and for each of them he isolated eighteen tags to represent the diversity and range of that specific character. You can browse the whole collection on the website of the Fondation Cartier.
“Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris” is part of the “Born In The Streets – Graffiti” exhibition at Fondation Cartier in Paris France. You can go and see it till November 29th, 2009.
The next stop of the Europeam Nike IAM1 Journey is London. They asked INSA, the infamous London-based artist, to do an installation and exhibition with his trademark pieces. It’s quite nice to see how he can scale them and how they fit perfectly together. Just watch the video to see what I mean.
Next Friday is the opening of “Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places” at 1948 in London.
Tomorrow is the opening of Banksy‘s exhibition at the Bristol Museum. 100 works will be shown and this quote of the master himself sums it up perfectly: “This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off”.
This is mandatory for everyone close to Bristol till August 31st!
THE ENTRY IS FREE

“Stained Glass Post-Pixelators” is a new project by Posterchild. It is actually different version of his “Stained Glass” project from last year. This time he placed Jesus post-pixelators figures over the HD advertising screen at the subway entrances in New York. These post-pixelators diffuse the light from the screens and turn the Jesus figures in something like animated paintings. But I guess when you watch the video everthing will become clear. By the way, the hands spell out P-O-S-T in sign language.
I really like EVOL‘s stencil, grafitti style! He has a whole sieres called “Plattenbauten”, of stenciled and strayed powerboxes. He did the 2 other pieces on regular cardboard. You can see more of his work at Wilde-Gallery in Berlin till the end of the month. Or just check out his Flickr set.
