Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others is a collaboration by Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charrière. It has been performed and exhibited in Copenhagen, Venice, and Berlin. It engages the city as a robust spatial ecology of things, perceptions, movements and constant surprise.„Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others“ includes a pigeon trapping apparatus designed by the artists. This apparatus is installed in public space to catch and airbrush pigeons as they move through the city. The pigeons are painted, dressed with vibrant, nontoxic dyes, rendered and released back into the urban environments we all share and constitute by this sharing. While the paint is harmless to the health of the pigeons, it destabilizes the safety of our perceptions concerning the roles art, institutions, and urban species—including humans, when species meet in public space, the space of their rights and of our everyday lives.Painted pigeons meets each different city on its own material terms—as a horizon of different species and perceptions which co-constitute each other, and renegotiate those terms.
The textures, traces, lines and rhythms, whether in an urban context or in the nature, attract the eye of Switzerland based photographer Thierry Mugny, also known as tchegg TM: This abstract writing challenges and fascinates me: it is a whisper of a passage of time, the history of man kind with all its complexity.

A tree is just a tree. That is, until you put a canvas behind it, turning it into a living piece of art. That’s exactly what South Korean artist Myoung Ho Lee did and we couldn’t be happier with the result.

the first weekend away from London means I am missing this
If you are around London this weekend, come visit our Pop Up Shop at the London Graphic Centre:
Central Saint Martins and London Graphic Centre invite you to ‘Note to Self’, a pop-up shop collaboration celebrating one of humanity’s greatest tools, the humble notebook. Second year Graphic Design students will be selling limited edition notebook designs that re-imagine this ordinary, yet extraordinary tool.
Each limited edition notebook to be sold was conceived and produced by the design and interaction pathway of 2nd year BA Graphic Design students. Their unique designs have been created within the restraints of a five week time scale, from concept, to prototype, to finished product, to your posession. The pop-up shop will run for a limited time of only two days. All proceeds from sales will go towards funding these students’ final degree show in 2014.
Private view (invite only): Thursday 30th May 2013 19:00 - 22:00
