in case you haven't heard,
there is a hurricane
headed toward your city
if you live on the East Coast
of the good olde US of A.
I grew up in Hurricane Alley,
so these are old hat
But the rest of my fellow New Yorkers are
freaking out a bit.
to document some
of the DIY solutions
to the upcoming wind, waves, and water....
Either they don't want any mail during the storm,
or they are afraid of Irene sucking
instead of blowing....
I like the placement and color
of the tape at the West Village art gallery Maccarone.
It was somebody's bright idea to turn every garbage can
in the City
over this morning, a good 24+
hours before we were to get any strong winds....
The bright idea quickly turned into this....
Way into the color coordination
right down to the terracotta pot.
Ion Chair 69
I loved this "piece" when I saw it at
Art Basel Miami last year....
Nope, it's urban sandbagging.
The blue plastic bag crammed
into the gap of the door is a nice touch.
To the "Rusty Knot" Crew,
too bad the Mayor forced you to close,
you would be making a MINT right now....
Loving this "piece".
These guys were not messing around.
This "piece" has an Andy Warhol feel to me
with the silver tape.
I wanted to buy this but it was sold.
The Meatpacking District at 6pm
on a Saturday night.
Abandoned just like the good old days...
This is the most subtle job, I mean "piece" I saw,
it will also be the most difficult to remove....
Tourists were not sure what to do.
The Apple Store had custom silver grey
Would you expect anything else?
The subtle greys and purples in this piece are just sublime.
I put this on reserve.
Look at this masterpiece!
Wait, that's a window display.
This is my favorite.
I can't remember what LES gallery represents this guy.....
