Received my first visitor today from Bleb.org. They have an interesting feature on their website where you click on a button and it generates two words at random which it feeds through the Google search interface. It then directs you to the top website in that search.
The only thing I don’t know is what two words the visitor found me under. Whatever the case, this is the page it took my visitors to.
Speaking of Random
The images above - exclusive to the Wooster site and provided by Banksy - are of Banksy installing four pieces in New York’s most prestigious museums - The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Natural History.
Dressed as a British pensioner, over the last few days Banksy entered each of the galleries and attached one of his own works, complete with authorative name plaque and explanation.
He says - “This historic occasion has less to do with finally being embraced by the fine art establishment and is more about the judicious use of a fake beard and some high strength glue.” Banksy continues -“They’re good enough to be in there, so I don’t see why I should wait”
Staff at the New York Met discovered and removed their new aquisition early Sunday morning while Banksy’s discount soup can print took pride of place in the MoMA for over three days before being torn down.
As of now, the other two pieces currently remain firmly in place…
This story is courtesy the Wooster Collective, with a hat tip to Kottke. It’s the guerilla art aspect of this story that captures me; the fact that the museum has two extra pieces of artwork up, and don’t know it. You should check out the pictures. They’re neat, and the paintings aren’t bad at all.
