El Contraste Entre La Pobreza Y La Riqueza En El Mundo

Concierge

Karl Philips is a young Belgian artist for whom a mild kind of activism is inextricably linked to his work. With his performing art, he explores the distinctions between public and non-public, common- and underground, us and them. In 2010, he created a mobile »apartment« attached to a billboard. Concierge is a transparent foldable pop-up shelter for homeless people on the back of company’s product placement.

The Great Travelling Art Exhibition

Using his finger to scribe into the layer of dirt built-up from exhaust emissions, Lancaster-born artist Ben Long creates elaborate drawings on the rear shutters of white haulage trucks. In this on-going series, collectively entitled The Great Travelling Art Exhibition, Long expands upon the daubing and crude slogans that commonly adorn commercial freight vehicles.

Social Pool

Alfredo Barsuglia’s Social Pool is an eleven-by-five-feet wide pool in the Southern California desert, open for anybody to use. Prerequisites for spa delights: A good transport connection and some free time. The drive and walk to the pool should provide »time to reflect on social values, dreams and reality«, the artist explains.

Illegal Spying Below

»We thought it would be fun to fly an airship around the Utah data center, which in many ways epitomizes the NSA’s collect-it-all strategy,« an activist of the Electronic Frontier Foundation describes the idea of how a protest might look like. A blimp displaying an enormous sign reading: »NSA. Illegally spying below.«

»Activist groups including the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Greenpeace launched the 135-foot thermal airship early Friday morning to protest the agency’s mass surveillance programs and to announce the launch of Stand Against Spying, a website that rates members of Congress on their support or opposition to NSA reform. The full message on the blimp reads ‘NSA: Illegal Spying Below’ along with an arrow pointing downward and the Stand Against Spying URL.«

Read the whole article: Over the NSA’s Utah Data Center by Andy Greenberg.
