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.«

Ghost Estates

Ghost Estates by Valerie Anex. »The National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis NIRSA defines a ghost estate as a development of ten houses or more in which fifty per cent or less of homes are occupied or completed. In October 2010, according to official estimates, there were 2846 ghost estates and more than 350 000 vacant homes throughout the Republic of Ireland. Ghost estates can be found everywhere, but most of them are located in the rural areas of the northern and western part of the country, in the counties of Cavan, Leitrim, Longford and Roscommon, which are the estates I visited« the artist commented.
