Weekend link-o-rama

Jade and Seth

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:

Illegal Atelièr: an abandoned factory project


Il Baro tipped me off about Illegal Atelièr, an ongoing project at an abandoned factory in Italy. So far, the pictures coming out of this thing just look amazing. Some of my favorite artwork has been painted in abandoned spots just like this one. I’m not sure exactly how many artists are involved in Illegal Atelièr or what the timeline is for the project to be completed, but I’ll definitely be continuing to keep an eye out for more photos. Here’s a wall that Il Baro painted with a number of other artists:
