activism process 1

The things within the theme of activism that I found really interesting involved small public displays of activism, like Craftivism, works by Santiago Sierra (especially his 1000 black posters works), and FLAMMA.

While talking to Mike about the subject, he showed me the film 'The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal', which I really liked.

I loved that they saw this seemingly unimportant or even ugly thing and put it in the context of art, so I wanted to do the same. After looking around on the streets for a bit I found these really pretty asphalt repairs.

They're actually pretty close to the school so I went there by bike and this particular road is full of these scribbly repairs.

I wanted to recontextualize these little unintentional works of art so I started tracing the lines in photoshop.
