For ten months artist Mikko Kuorinki formed one new text on the wall of Kiasma museum every week, using text passage of different authors such as Mitch Hedberg, Elias Canetti or Joe Brainard.
Challenge: Create an image out of a word, using only the letters in the word itself without adding any extra elements. A very interesting project by the former Creative Director at Google Creative Labs, Ji Lee. Pretty amazing.
Spanish creative group Boamistura recently realized a series of artworks (anamorphosis) in Vila Brâsilandia, one of São Paulo’s favela. Boamistura is a multidisciplinary art collective base in Madrid, Spain. The collective is made up of five artists who focus largely on graffiti and community building. This particular project focused on “vecos” and “vielas”: winding streets that are the true components of the community’s internal life to share with the inhabitants the transformation of their environment. The troupe painted the walls of the town bright colors, and using a clever visual trick -painted words that appear to float when viewed from, a certain angle. More works on http://www.boamistura.com
