Beautiful, intricate and elaborate work at the skullgallery by skull artist Jim. Made from a number of mediums – although often wound cable or twine – every skull constructed is unique, often with unusual trinket beards.


A Love Letter To You

Finishing up in February 2010 Love Letter was/is a 50 wall project by Stephen Powers – recently in Sydney for the excellent Disorder Disorder exhibition. Situated on rooftops along the Market Street corridor in Philadelphia, each wall is a love letter to a person or place commissioned by the City Of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program – the largest public art program in the US. If you’re in the area, catch the Market/Frankford line for the best view.

Found this enormous, fascinating collection of Google Street View images collated by artist Jon Rafman.  Each image provides a candid, unstaged glimpse of its surroundings in a startling variety of locations. Some are simply beautiful photos, some bizarre – from fields with Elephants to street scenes seemingly on the verge of riots or natural disaster. Jon gave an interesting synopsis of the work over on Art Fag City. via the ever reliable It’s Nice That

Love this project by Aram Bartholl who’s been installing flash drives into walls and other structures loaded only with a text file. Labelled Dead Drops anyone is invited to plug their notebook and share files at locations now popping up all around the world. I think we might have to contribute a Sydney location…
