UrbanArt. Installation. World Cultural Heritage "Völklinger Hütte":  Two giant faces made of foil were glued onto two old giant tanks of the disused steelworks. The upright tanks are connected with pipes. In front, a long rusty pipe leads from one center to the other center of the tanks. The artists have mounted photos of former employees to give a panoramic view of the head. The two, man and woman, are making faces and each has the end of the pipe in their mouths.
Info: Berlin-based artist collective Mentalgassi has become known for its whimsical urban art. For example, they have pasted large-format images of friends, acquaintances or family members onto round containers for glas, which they have processed into circular images using a printing process they developed themselves.

"Vergil’s secret message."

Long derided as mere coincidences, acrostics in ancient poetry are finally being taken seriously – with astonishing results.

Snakes in the grass. From a manuscript of Nicander’s Theriaca poem, c11th century CE. Courtesy the BnF, Paris.

A drawing on old, yellowy paper. It depicts twi snakes with a pink belly and a brown back. One of them is going to the left, one of them is going to the right, towards a man with dark, curly hair who is wearing a blue tunic and is holding up his right hand up.

Streetart and Photography. On a sidewalk, next to a brick wall, the funny miniature installation of a children's slide has been attached. An existing installation hole in the ground was unceremoniously integrated. The silver mini slide stands in front of the round hole . Next to it is a mini sign in neon yellow with the following text:
Steps can get slippery when it rains.
Sude may get too hot on summer days.
Bottomless pit could cause death.

Tonight I'm listening to another pure digital remix. This one is Neil Young's Harvest album. I first listened to this with headphones back in 1976 and am doing that right now. I still have the album I bought all those years ago. I remember bringing it home and my housemate, an artist and designer, was impressed by the album cover. So we gave that 33 a spin on my turntable. #RIP Ron, those were the days! #Music #headphones #Classics

The background is divided into colored triangles and squares, which also overlay the drawing of the bearded painter.

Streetartwall. A pasteup of characters from the movie "Vertigo" was pasted on the corner of a house wall in Paris. James Stewart kisses Kim Novak on one wall while holding hands with another woman pasted on the other wall. Above the woman is a speech bubble with the French text:
"This vertigo of love gives me cold sweats..." ("Ce vertige de l'amour me donne des sueurs froides...")
In the photo, an elderly couple dressed in winter clothes, carrying a basket and crutch, stand in front of the painting and look at it with interest.
Info: A dumb collector stole this painting and another within 24 hours. So there are only about 2 photos of it.

Its long green plumage with blue and white peacock eyes covers almost the entire wall. Impressive.

And it'd need to be something that wouldn't need to be fired again afterward if it's gonna work as a pencil cup or whatever; I have plenty of access to painting supplies for my students, but not, so far as I'm aware, anything like a kiln.

Okay, so! If anyone with 3D printing experience would like to chime in (and do feel free to boost), what I would like to find is:

1) files that will let me print replicas of ancient Greek objects (or Roman, but Greek's better);

2) ideally, art objects, like statues & reliefs;

3) best of all, with Greek mythological figures/scenes;

4) at the most ideal, /at actual size/, so statuettes & other very small pieces would be perfect.

🥴 Artist: #Woskerski / #WOSK 💕 in City: #London #Shoreditch UK 🇬🇧 2022 - Title: "Overload" (Überlastung) - #Art #Streetart #Classics #Mural #Mastoart #Overload #GoodMorning ! ☕🥐🥐

Streetartwall. On a street wall is sprayed/painted a mural of a blonde girl grimacing. The comic style mural is designed in brown and beige colors. The girl on the wall has both hands pressed into her face, contorting it into a funny grimace with a crooked kissing mouth. Probably she is a bit annoyed, because the title is: "Overload".
