Another (relatively) enforced hiatus has prevented posting too much recently. So I’m going to start again with something small and smart to get the get the ball rolling again…
Years ago, Ji Lee (@pleaseenjoy) was one of the first artists/designers to truly realize the power of street art as a communication tool as much as a promotional tool. The Bubble Project provided a forum for people in NYC to create their own comments on the advertising that dominates the city. Happily timed around the rise of social sharing, the Bubble Project took on a life of it’s own. Spreading around the world.
Ji is now back with a follow up project of sort. Mysterabbit sees small (what looks like 3D Printed rabbits) dotted around the world. A collaborative project designed to ‘spread a little mystery around the city’ it has a simplicity and calmness that I love. It resonates even more so as someone who has moved to a new city recently, and am experiencing the joy of discovering the nuances and the gaps that make up the many layers of city living. It’s in that sense that projects like Mysterabbit always surprise and delight.
