Street Art Utopia's Best of 2011 I couldn’t help but direct everyone to fellow public art loving blog Street Art Utopia as they have compiled a pretty decent list of the best street art of 2011. If you are just getting into the wonderful world of pasting, spraying or making the streets a more creative place, this list is a great place to start (short of Wall and Piece). One of the best things about this genre is it’s diversity – you can decided what you find gimmicky/twee or meaningful and awe-inspiring. Street art has always been the public’s voice, and the art world has yielded success to those with great ideas and a call for change.

NLP Presupposition: The Map is Not the Territory, by John David Hoag Our brains will use whatever maps we give them. NLP's 1933 roots and why eating menus isn't pretty A founding principle of NLP, the distinction between a map and a territory made its debut in Alfred Korzybski's 1933 seminal work, Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics. The idea seems simple enough -- who, after all, would confuse a roadmap with a road, or a menu with a meal? Yet Korzybski observed that people often confuse what they think with 'reality'.
Great street art of 2012 by Anorak | 19th, November 2012 GREAT Street art: Spotter: StreetUtopia Anorak containerbay There is growing interest in the use of shipping containers as the basis for habitable structures. These "icons of globalization" are relatively inexpensive, structurally sound and in abundant supply. Although, in raw form, containers are dark windowless boxes (which might place them at odds with some of the tenets of modernist design...) they can be highly customizable modular elements of a larger structure. The projects below are sorted alphabetically (by company or designer's name). In addition to the container-based projects listed below we offer links to useful web sites and relevant books. Selected projects utilizing shipping containers.
Ikonen: History's Classic Images, Re-Created in the Studio - Photographs by Jojakim Cortis And Adrian Sonderegger In 2012, Swiss-based artists Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger presented themselves with a challenge: to recreate some of the world's most iconic images in their studio. In a bit of self-deprecating irony, they decided to start with the world's most expensive photograph (at the time), Andreas Gursky's Rhein II. After all, the money wasn't coming in for their own work, but at least they could have some fun. The positive feedback they received after the first image was enough: with this initial success, they decided to deepen the series. But they quickly realized they needed a new metric besides expense—many of the other images on the list were simply too hard to reproduce using the same methods. So they began trawling through books filled with history's most memorable photographs and picking out ones which caught their eye.
