Hand Helmet

"Bye Hand Helmet image", part of an advertising campaign for Bye Helmets. I would love to see this thing cast as a real helmet. It does show the possibilities in terms of making clothing etc. from casts.

Bruce County Hazmat Project

These "Cutouts" take painting to a new level. Using the traditional medium of oil paint, these cutouts are painted on plywood and installed in site specific environments. Part of a roadside cutout series created by Paul Richard James they turn the folk art garden variety cutout into a subversive medium. These cutouts, figures in Hazmat suits, are installed along the shores of Bruce County Ontario, a stones throw from the Bruce Nuclear Reactor and the scene of the fatal water contamination of the town of Walkerton.

Cops blast 'parcel bomb' artist and warn: She may face jail
By Jeff Edwards Chief Crime Correspondent

AN ARTIST could face jail for bringing panic to thousands of London commuters yesterday by leaving five suspicious parcels in the street.
The unnamed 36-year-old was arrested after the multiple bomb scare delayed up to 100,000 commuters.
Several hundred officers raced to the scene amid fears of a terrorist attack.
Large areas around the BBC TV centre in Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush were cordoned off while bomb-disposal officers checked the boxes. The woman was arrested nearby and claimed they were an art installation. Scotland Yard said the woman's actions were "reckless, selfish, and stupid" and are calling for her to be jailed.
An anti-terrorist source said: "This prank spread fear and anxiety among thousands. To do such a thing after last July's outrages defies belief."
Police say it cost them £100,000. The woman was charged with causing a public nuisance and released on bail. (from the Daily Mirror)

Shop & Guilt

These images are stuck to the glass doors of a shop in Paris. What is the message here? How could you spend your money better? Do you really need that sweater? At the very least there is a "shock factor" here. Is it art? Why not?
