So I’ve been working a lot lately on Re:Humanities, a symposium of undergraduate work in the digital humanities. It’s taking place next week at Swarthmore College, just outside of Philadelphia. I hope you’ll come check it out if you’re nearby. I’ll be speaking about how the internet has changed street art, and there are a bunch of other great topics up for discussion for anyone interested in the digital humanities. Okay, that’s my personal announcement for the week, now onto the news:
- Conor Harrington, Dscreet and Ronzo collaborated on this wall over in Dalston.
- Sweet Toof and Paul Insect have also been painting some fantastic walls in London.
- Okay so this video of a piece by Verbo isn’t the best quality, but the piece is pretty awesome and very different from a lot of what is out there. I wish I could have seen the animation in the flesh and I hope he continues to work with this combination of mural and digital projection.
- 2 Many Printers is a cool little clothing brand with t-shirts by Husk Mit Navn, Ian Stevenson and others.
- This mural is probably my absolute favorite piece of public art that I’ve seen related to the Egyptian Revolution.
- Glad to see I’m not the only one who thinks Anthony Lister’s “Planet of the Apes” mural was problematic and a disservice to the art community.
- C215 has a show in Paris of stained glass windows based on his imagery.
- Shepard Fairey is involved in a possible new film version of 1984. Could be cool, although it’s a bit ironic since Fairey was involved in trying to rewrite history himself when he submitted doctored evidence in a court case.
- Niels Shoe Muelman has a show opening this week at 941 Geary in SF.
