Playground / Bend Sinister

Playground 4: Bend Sinister The Road Divided
100 people packed into Zulu Records to collaborate with Bend Sinister for the latest installment of Playground. The last video (see here) kinda spelled out the process a bit more clearly but essentially this project is about changing the concert experience. People get to sing and play and create with a band rather than spectate.

Watch the performance below!

Papergirl Vancouver

Papergirl Berlin
Still from Papergirl #3 (Berlin)

“Give away what you’ve got!” Papergirl was originally started by Aisha Ronniger in 2006. It is an art project in which paper art is given away to unsuspecting people around Berlin via bicyclists. Over the years it has spread to other cities and now there is a Papergirl Vancouver. If you want to submit your artwork or be a bicycle delivery person jump over here.

I dug up the video I posted back in 2009, watch it below!
