I’m sure most everyone is aware of the ad campaign that Sony Bravia is doing with bunnies. But if you haven’t heard about it, this will get you started I found that site today when I was wandering around the internet like I do.
Reminds me of The Big Pig Gig from back in 2000 in Cincinnati. New Orleans had the Festival of Fins the same year. I like the idea of art being placed haphazardly all over the city…sort of in general. I know some people didn’t like the fish – imagine how much more intrusive a big ol’ pig would have been (and they were big). So it was odd to see this article from February I don’t know how that slipped by me. I don’t really remember seeing them either. I guess I’m not very connected with the art community thing. Sad.
But I like the idea of it and I was wondering if there wasn’t something that could be done in that same vein? I don’t know what but I’m thinking a rogue group of people hiding art pieces all over town like big, public easter eggs. Too bad none of the krewes would let me in. At least then I’d have some people to cohort with on this.
But since I don’t, I guess I’ll just throw it out on the public domain. I just think it would be nice to do something colorful, organized, purposeful, and positive. It isn’t as obvious now, but one of the things I remember most about Katrina was how dark it was those nights after the storm, then when I got back again weeks later, it seemed like it was still very dark at night but even during the day everything was so gray. I think sometimes I still see the gray even if it isn’t there anymore.
