BLDGBLOG: Pieces of the city are forming, like islands

Like the movie Bladerunner, images of a future that is occurring unevenly… A postmodern future, where strange structural forms and dirt roads, fiber optics and donkeys coexist. A future that is not in the United States.

Pieces of the city are forming, like islands: “Photographer Bas Princen has a fantastic new exhibition, called “Refuge,” up at Storefront for Art and Architecture.

A Farm Grows in Brooklyn – on a Rooftop

Check out this project to build a 1-acre working vegetable farm, producing local produce for Brooklyn, on a rooftop.

Aside from the intrinsic interest of the project – and the importance of urban agriculture to creating sustainable cities and a sustainable society – the “Kickstarter” site is an interesting experiment in alternative funding.

Artist Promotes ‘Subway Etiquette’ With Guerrilla Campaign

“Riding the subway in NYC is cheap, efficient, and often, highly irritating. It’s like a concentration of the most inconsiderate and rude people know to man, but hopefully one graphic designing prankster can help.”

via Artist Promotes ‘Subway Etiquette’ With Guerrilla Campaign — ANIMAL.

Artist Jay Shells has produced ‘Subway Etiquette’ poster campaign – a series of posters based on people’s pet peeves about behaviour on the subway, and has been posting them, guerrilla style, through the system.

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
