I was gayly strolling down Broadway when I saw some felt covered heads on sticks. They were severed heads with fucking felt blood. Broadway and 10th to be exact. Maybe 11th. The artist is Adam Parker Smith. Look at the heads!

The artist Boxi is totally doing it for me right now. His pieces are dark, funny, and beautiful all at the same time.

“CutUp are an anonymous collective of artists based in East London, who work in outdoor intervention, film and sound installation. Their work focuses largely on the processes of disruption inherent in the everyday and on the reconfiguring of pre-existing systems within the urban environment.” This makes me want to quit my day-job and move to East London and make art that focuses on the process of disruption inherent in the everyday.

I would love to have experienced Roger Hiorns piece ‘Seizure’ in the Elephant & Castle flats in London. He filled an entire apartment with 90,000 liters of copper sulphate solution poured through the ceiling. The crystals grow and completely take over every room, from floor to ceiling to light fixture to sink. While the crystals are beautiful, they’re also aggressive, making the space less than comfortable to live in. Thanks to Cool Hunting for the tip! K$
