Papergirl!

“Give away what you’ve got!” This video is so inspiring! Originally started by Aisha Ronniger, Papergirl is a project that has been going on since 2006. Paper art is distributed to unsuspecting people around Berlin via bicyclists. Artists submit work from all over the world (nothing digital), and the art is bundled up in groups of 10-15 pieces so each roll has a unique assortment of work. Just watch the video, it explains it way better! The deadline for submissions is June 17th.

Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored. Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
