QR-Code Hack


 Politisch-sexuell motivierten Guerilla-Aktionen: Alexandra Thein von der FDP hängt aktuell mit der Botschaft “Liebe kennt keine Grenzen” in Berlin auf diversen Plakatflächen und lädt Interessierte per QR-Code zu ihrem Wahlwerbespot ein. Was die Chefin des Landesverbandes der Liberalen nicht wusste: Viele der Codes führten zu einem Porno. Unbekannte überklebten den Original-Code. Der verschwindend geringe Aufwand macht die Aktion noch genialer. Kommentar von Frau Thein: “Widerlich.” via schleckysilberstein

Mark Jenkins: Go Figure!

American artist Mark Jenkins’s urban (and rural) interventions are street-smart—in the truest sense of the word.
Jenkins creates and sets free a colorful cast of characters by way of clear tape casts: the homeless, kids, vagrants, polar bears, and horses (to name but a few) all take their place in the wild, wild urban space, while interacting with the surrounding buildings and public places that provide the context and set the stage. Positioning them around the world, Jenkins’ sculptures have made their way around the world in cities throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Disturbing, humorous, and enigmatic in equal measures, Mark Jenkins enlists his hyper-realistic sculptures into the service of, for example, Greenpeace, as well as for exhibitions, performances, art galleries, and workshops. We met the Washington, DC-based Jenkins in Berlin, where he was contributing to a dance theatre piece.
