Banksy2Banksy3

“The Jungle” is a refugee camp in the French port city of Calais, the primary crossing point between England and France. It’s here that Banksy has revealed new artwork depicting the late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple and, as his piece highlights, the son of a Syrian migrant. The image is one in a series intended to change people’s misconceptions about the thousands of refugees living in the area. Infrastructure from Banksy’s recent “bemusement” park, Dismaland (previously posted about here), is also being used to help create emergency housing for migrants living in Calais.

I think it’s safe to say these are the most deluxe mixtapes ever made. Music blogger Brandon Bogajewicz’s concept behind the Vinyl Moon project is simple: Subscribers get a new mixtape mailed to them each month, on limited edition vinyl, with beautiful packaging by a new different designer.

The images above are of Volume 3, featuring packaging designed by Clint Soren. You can see volumes 1 and 2 (designed by Joseph Veazey and Keith Negley respectively) below.
