Street art around Brick Lane in London. It is not anymore the edgiest area around and its currently heavily gentrified, but for the moment there is still some artistic expressiveness. At least until the developers take over.Pictures by WWT

Fashion Victims is an urban action organized by Yolanda Dominguez in the center of Madrid, inspired by the recent tragedy in Bangladesh’s textile factory collapse and focusing on the real victims of the western fashion industry, i.e., infantile exploitation, unchecked contamination, precarious labor conditions a.k.a. slave-work.

In Memoriam: Margaret Thatcher

“So long, so long, you kept me waiting so long, so long, 
Read the epitaph, ring the bell, 
you’ve got a one-way ticket to hell.”

No need to add a word to Chumbawamba’s statement:

Let’s make it clear: This is a cause to celebrate, to party, to stamp the dirt down […] If we must show a little reverence and decorum at this time, then so be it. Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of all Margaret Thatcher’s victims.

I say: JUMP!

This is not something brand new for the word but it is the first time it is done in Athens: BASE Jump from Apollo tower in Riancour street. The video ignited multiple reactions and comments about the legitimacy of this action coming from a number of prudent citizens who demand that the jumper gets arrested and punished;  claiming reasons of safety and security. WWT wants to comment that BASE jump, like any other urban sport, such as parkour, skate or bmx offers new readings of the urban landscape, breaks the borders of regular and organized urban behaviour and as such it bears risk (mainly for the doer) but also responsibility .Unfortunately prudent citizens assume that everybody except them is irresponsible or perhaps they are green with envy for not having the guts to jump themselves!

Eco-Graffiti

Moss graffiti, also called eco-graffiti or green graffiti, replaces spray paint, paint-markers or other such toxic chemicals and paints with a paintbrush and a moss “paint” that can grow on its own. As people become more eco-friendly and environmentally aware, the idea of making living, breathing graffiti has become a more green and creative outlet for graffiti artists. It can also be considered another form of guerrilla gardening.

Ingredients:

    One or two clumps (about a small handful) of moss
    2 cups of buttermilk
    You can also substitute with yogurt (vegan yogurt can be used)
    2 cups of water
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    Corn syrup (optional)

Steps:

    1 – Gather up as much moss as you can find or buy.
    2 – Wash the moss to get as much soil out of the roots as possible.
    3 – Break the moss apart into manageable pieces and place in blender.
    4 – Add the buttermilk/yogurt, water/beer and sugar. Blend the mixture until completely smooth. You’ll want it to have a paint-like texture. If the mixture is at a consistency where you feel it will drip, add corn syrup until the consistency you desire is reached.
    5 – Use a paintbrush to apply the moss-paint to the surface on which you wish your design to grow.
    6 – If possible, check back weekly to either spray the design with water (to encourage moss growth, especially if you live in a dry environment) or apply more moss-paint.
