  • Love this song

    yeah the text was sort of visually distracting, with that said I imagine it was very cool for the participants to have their names in the video, I’ve always thought of Brownsville as a horrible neighborhood in Brooklyn but this brigthens my outlook on the place some

    • ya i never thought about that side of it, great tribute to the moms and coaches

    love the song. love that they profiled nyc youth and their families, but i can’t help feeling a little uncomfortable about the lack of integration. there’s some, but not enough. but the again, forced integration isn’t genuine. i live/work in brooklyn, so i understand demographics, but i think this video brings to light that nyc is more of a mixing then melting pot. i hope in the future this continues to change. on a more positive note, this could be seen as a project heralding in a new era that will continue to bring more people together through art.

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”
