A firm favourite for artist name of the year, is possibly an admission of the possibilities upon this new art form, or rather our art form. By that I mean all us digital kids who created or observed these odd, humorous, artistic and sometime crazy gifs. This is a new thing, certainly not around when the chap in the suit was around was a teenager. I don’t think we are a million miles away from gif artists having their own exhibitions and such, I’ll be bit surprised if it’s not been done yet but image walking into one of these grand gallery halls and viewing gif artists work surrounding you, might be a tad surreal.
Keine Sorge - auch wenn es so aussieht sind auf dem Frankfurter Flughafen in Wahrheit natürlich keine Sternenzerstörer gelandet. Doch in diesem Video, das derzeit das Phänomeme-Web begeistert, wird der Fraport tatsächlich zum “Starport”. Gut gemacht ist der Clip aber allemal - und für die Star-Wars-Fans wird er immerhin etwas die Wartezeit bis zu “Star Wars Episode VII” verkürzen, der im Dezember 2015 in die Kinos kommen soll.
These awesomely altered neighborhood watch signs are the handiwork of Toronto, Ontario-based artist Andrew Lamb. The nondescript street signs have been posted around Toronto for years, which meant that everyone was so used to them they just blended into the scenery.
I walked by and thought those signs would be much better with a superhero up there. The first one was a splash page — a common thing in comic books, a bunch of superheros popping out at you. Then came Batman and Robin, RoboCop, Beverly Hills Cop, and then it snowballed.
Lamb’s superheroic enhancements are sure to get the signs noticed by upstanding citizens and potential criminals alike. Heck, we’d probably think twice about simply jaywalking if we thought Mister Rogers was watching.
