Chris Jordan is turning the uncomfortable and all too often ignored statistics of our culture into amazing and expressive large pieces of photographic artwork. His new series; An American Self-Portrait, is inspiring but the subject matter is our sad reality and begs the question: how do we slow this down?

Gas Design Group, made up of Gregory Polletta and Sung Jang, with Clino Castelli, have designed Topiade, an "overlay facade," for existing Louis Vuitton stores.
It appears to be a new kind of intermixing of living walls with topiary. This is wonderful because everything Louis Vuitton does gets knocked off instantly.

What happens when a mayor decides to ban advertisements in a vibrant city of 11 million people with more than 8,000 billboards? Impossible, insane, absurd, or just plain genius? Well this is what happened this past January when mayor Gilberto Kassabs â€œClean Cityâ€ law was introduced in Sao Paulo Brazil banning any form of advertising throughout the city to rid of â€œvisual clutterâ€.
The Barnstormers are a collective of New York/Tokyo-based artists who create large-scale collaborative paintings, films and performances. The group formed in 1999 after a pilgrimage to the rural town of Cameron, North Carolina. During the trip, twenty-five artists painted dozens of barns, tractor-trailers, shacks and farm equipment. Consequently, the tiny tobacco farming community became the unlikely Mecca for the urban collective. To this day, the Barnstormers continue to interpret and communicate the visual, cultural, and spiritual awakenings inspired by their trips to the south.
The Barnstormers continue to experiment and collaborate, both domestically and internationally, with yearly returns to Cameron to paint new murals.
