culture jamming....

What do you get if you combine Guerrilla Gardening with Culture Jamming??
You get something like 'Tree in front of billboard' ('Boom voor billboard').
In discontent with the presence of bilboards in the urban landscape, Dutch artist Helmut Smits decided to take direct action in a creative way.
Instead of defacing the billboards, he dressed up as a city worker and planted a tree in front of one of them in broad daylight.

Rebar Parking

On November 16, 2005 a parking space in San Fransisco was subliminally hacked. At noon, the parking-space transformed into a small public park with grass, a tree and a bench where people could rest and relax. After two hours, the park turned back into a parking space. The urban intervention was performed by Rebar group without any interference from the local authorities.

Bike Rack

6 bicycles versus ONE car. this bike park occupies a single carpark space.

OSA - Office for Subversive Architecture london, near shoreditch tube station beside the tracks of the railway you find a little house on stilts, formally used as a signal box but there is no access anymore. this house looks like a small scaled typical single standing family house in a suburban or even countryside area. although it is old - and weathered it seems completely out of place like a building-alien in a rough and poor environment.

Photoblog culture

Flaneurism was dealt a blow by car culture and suburbanization, but lately, it seems to have made a comeback. Can part of the credit for this revival be given to photobloggers? "Today's flaneur is the photoblogger," writes DeWolf. "Wandering around town, snapping photos of places and faces, these men and women are urban ethnographers, observing and interpreting the city around them." Maisonneuve - Christopher DeWolf

The Flaneur....

--"that aimless stroller who loses himself in the crowd, who has no destination and goes wherever caprice or curiosity directs his or her steps"--
