Year Zero

Ok, the lawn pizza vomit based colour scheme has gone. Fine. But just how could you actually do anything good with this abortion? If you can’t go the bulldozer option, then what brilliant white? Is there any other way to go? I can’t see an upside.

    As if it’s a creativity vortex, sucking any decent ideas right into it when anyone gets close.
    If in Freo this would have been yarn bombed by now.

    It does seem a little … overengineered, doesn’t it?

    the only way to do this sculpture justice is with some randomly chosen phrases from an art criticism article:

    Clearly, the art’s precariousness signals the indispensable conditions of making and apprehending the perceptual object. Its agential, indexical, epistemological, historical, and causal relations to the perceptual object of the complex mark the spatial and other apprehensible properties of the perceptual object, whose visibly reflexive form mirrors the reflexive form of its comprehension.

    Meaning, i think, tilt-up concrete art is perfect for teh stre’s aesthetic (indeed, for Perth as a hole (sic)).

    Is it supposed to look as if it’s falling apart?

    the brilliant white will provide a canvas for tagging.

    Has Troy Buswell driven into this?

    I’ve said it before, but yet another appallingly literal, typically bureaucratic interpretation of the concept of “placemaking,” e.g. erect the name of the place in big fuckin’ letters. Mind you, once we come to having to “make” “places,” as local councils believe, we’re kinda fucked anyway.


  8. Message to Austria. Fuck you Fritzl. Perth does it so much better. Also generally to BWSAM: Fuck New Jersey. But you knew that already.

    The ‘Disse was yarn-bombed over the weekend – I didn’t get pictures because it was night-time and I was drunk and didn’t realise it was a co-ordinated attack until I saw photos of Facebook on Sunday.

    all the bike racks and the Bunnie with the Boobies were wrapped. Apparently it was part of International Yarn-Bombing Day, or to commemorate D-Day. One or the other.

    It was for these freedoms that men died on the beaches. Dresden was carpet-bombed so that Highgate can be crochet-bombed.

    i noticed this morning.

    is that really their idea of vibrancy?

    also, people doing things behind the now screened off beaufort stree sculpture.
