Street Art … Monkey with Money in NYC

These “Monkey Money” street art wheat-pastes (“wheaties”) and stickers have been dotting walls around New York City for a while now. Here’s a tiny one we found on Ludlow Street not far form Global Graphica HQ in the Lower East Side.

What’s Up with This Super-Targeted Billboard in NYC?

This somewhat cryptic message on this billboard in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood would seem to be largely meaningless to most people who might see it. But for the 2,000 or so people who work at the global advertising agency Ogilvy (a.k.a., Ogilvy & Mather) and its worldwide headquarters, which occupies an entire building across the street form the billboard, the message is clearly aimed at them. The billboard is a click-baity type ad driving to a website for Intridea, a technology development company that’s pitching its services to major ad agencies.

Why the Museum of Modern Art Chose to Exhibit a Helicopter

The galleries of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York are not someplace you’d expect to find a an actual helicopter on display, but the Shiebel S-100 “Camcopter,” a large unmanned drone the size of a sub-compact car, is fact currently on view at MoMA as part of its exhibition titled “Design and Violence.” The design exhibition looks at the design objects that have, on appearance, an ambiguous relationship with violence as seen in warfare and various private and state security operations around the world. The curved, aero-dynamic design of the chopper and its clean look and minimalist, robotic aesthetic are at once beautiful and ominous.
