99 Balloons, 1 Brick of Gold, 7000 Thumbtacks



Peruvian artist Iván Sikic addresses the growing income gap through an installation involving 99 balloons, one gilded brick, and 7000 thumbtacks. While events like Occupy Wallstreet brought the fact that 1% of the population controls the majority of the world’s wealth into the mainstream, Sikic aims to keep that conversation going. “It’s My Party and I Do What I Want To” is cheeky but it’s the kind of poking fun that draws attention to the sheer ridiculousness of that reality and what it means for the rest of the 99%.

Best of Kickstarter: Mr Bingo’s Hate Mail


In 2011, London-based illustrator Mr Bingo took to Twitter, offering to post personalized hate mail to the first person to respond to his tweet. What started with “Fuck you Jonathan, fuck you and fuck your shit legs” turned into a full-blown Hate Mail service that would go on to sell out within minutes every time it was offered.

Mr Bingo is now looking to release Hate Mail: The Definitive Collection. The prospective retrospective will showcase 156 of his favourite postcards. See more images and check out Mr Bingo’s rapping promo video below!
