2 giant spiders are trapped in the top floor of a glass-front home in this video mapping installation by German designer Friedrich van Schoor.
Part of the process (as explained in the video above), was building a scaled model of the projection space, where real spiders were enclosed and filmed.
Found here. Link to video.

no real than you are

Giant Legoman washed ashore at the beach of  Siesta Key Village, Florida. On its chest is the message, “No real than you are.”
This suggests it has the same origin as Lego men who washed ashore in Zandvoort, Holland, three years ago, and then in Brighton, England.
According to this article it’s all the handiwork of an artist collective called “Ego Leonard” which is somehow connected to Du Fois.
Found here.

under surveillance

Marcos Zotes’ project CCTV/Creative Control took place on October 1st in Greenpoint, Brooklyn as part of a Nuit Blanche celebration.
It consists of a video projection displaying an over-sized eye onto the underside of a 10-storey tall water tower, turning it into a massive CCTV tower.
