Whereas Cordal’s sculptures are subtle and small, this installation by Argentinian artist Pablo Curutchet is anything but. The 900-pound box man was installed in Boulevar san Juan and av. Marcelo T. Alvear, Córdoba, Argentina, in 2006 stood nearly 28 feet above street level and was constructed entirely out of cardboard boxes and tape. It took 11 people to mount it into place
Born in Germany Lives and works in Berlin, Germany
Evol born in Germany. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany. my aim has always been to reflect what was going on around me through images. The work with buildings, like the PLATTENBAUTEN project (2004 onwards), deal with the idea of doing something without having one’s name attached to it. PLATTENBAUTEN, buildings with bland, featureless prefabricated slab façades you find everywhere in Berlin are great because they too are anonymous yet they have so much character. I’ve always loved walking around the city, looking for architectural moments that spoke to me. The surface of the city is something on which I can communicate both to a small circle of street artists, and to society in general. I always noticed these grey electrical boxes as I walked around Berlin, and I just had an impulse to do something with them. I also like that they’re usually pretty dirty, that they accumulate color and texture simply from sitting outside. The same goes for the cardboard pieces. The cardboard I use is all found material. It has markings from use and neglect: bits of tape, writing, scratches, signage. These accidental markings signify experiences that have little to do with the cardboard box’s intended use.
Luzinterruptus the wind brought us crime uzinterruptus’s focus is on the global economic crisis and the appropriate venue is the steps of the Madrid Stock Exchange. The group used the financial pages from influential newspapers to create a light installation at a spot they believe the virus began to spread, as though borne by the wind.
Spanish light intervention team Luzinterruptus spent one hour and twenty minutes creating an installation in Madrid entitled A Cloud of Bags Visits the Prado . Eighty recycled shopping bags were lit up outside the museum, bobbing in the wind in an attempt to see the art inside. The effect is rather ephemeral and pretty, in fact. The installation lasted four hours. Hopefully it brought a smile to a few faces during that time. Artist: Luzinterruptus + luzinterruptus1.blogspot.com
Dupludo- Egor Bashakov "public poster project" is done by Egor Bashakov/Elay, Eika Dupludo, Dopludo collective Imagine you saw a colour in your dream, which you have never seen before. It doesn't consist of any colours or shades that you know. Trying to describe that colour would be as difficult as trying to belive that there is enough love & compassion in the world so every human can feel happiness. 22% of people read the text on street posters like this one. 28% - try to read, and without having understood any sense of it, go further. The rest don't pay it attention. But what if the secret of happiness has been written here? Our society is not perfect, and that makes it beautiful Even if our brain only uses 15% of its full capacity we can still appreciate life a 100%

If you’re not sure about creating your own urban light graffiti, you can always interact with the work of someone else. The above Light Brix are touch sensitive. Passers by can create their own patterns on Light Brix walls. Know of other creative urban light art (such as light grenades)?
Economy Ice Sculpture by Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese The economic meltdown was illustrated in a very public and literal fashion by artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese in 2008, on the 79th anniversary of the 1929 Black Tuesday stock market crash. The ice sculpture, which spelled out ‘ECONOMY’, was placed across from the New York State Supreme Court Building in Manhattan’s Foley Square and allowed to melt. Said Ligorano of ‘Main Street Meltdown’, “To see the word ‘economy’ melting down is representational of our extreme time.”
Segmented Street Sign Sculptures by Robbie Rowlands These eye-catching segmented street sign sculptures are just the beginning of Melbourne-based Robbie Rowlands‘ collection of mind-bending works. Rowlands takes very precise slices of objects and even spaces (like cut-outs of floors and walls) and curls them up in various contortions. From doors and chairs to trees and water towers, Rowlands’ manipulations call to mind tightly controlled destruction.

Guerrilla Art• Guerrilla art, also referred to as "street art", is a method of art making where the artist leaves anonymous art pieces in public places. It is often an installation in an unauthorized location. It is a way for an artist to express their views and opinions to a large audience in an anonymous way. In contrast to popular belief, guerrilla art does not have to be done with spray paint.
