Mosaic Lady Wall Scupltures in Philly

I just discovered these the other day around the corner from where I live. I love the way vines have grown along the wall and wrapped around some of the ladies. I want to plant some flowers in the one with the pot on her head when Spring comes.

JR's Slum Art in Kenya

After more than a year of planning, 2000 square meters of rooftops have been covered with photos of the eyes and faces of the women of Kibera, Kenya. The material used is water resistant so that the photo itself will protect the fragile houses in the heavy rain season. The train that passes on this line through Kibera at least twice a day has also been covered with eyes from the women that live below it. With the eyes on the train, the bottom half of the their faces have be pasted on corrugated sheets on the slope that leads down from the tracks to the rooftops. The idea being that for the split second the train passes, their eyes will match their smiles and their faces will be complete.

Open Burble Project

"In Open Burble, members of the public come together to compose, assemble and control an immense rippling, glowing, bustling 'Burble' that sways in the evening sky, in response to the crowd interacting below. This massive structure, the form of which the public has themselves designed, exists at such a large scale that it is able to compete visually in an urban context with the skyscrapers that surround it."
