...future show at the gallery


I'm planning a future show (mid '08) at Hushpuppy Gallery that will feature Moss Graffiti... still working out the details, but in the meantime, check out this starter:

* Take a clump (a small handful) of healthy moss and crumble it into a blender.

* Add 2 cups of buttermilk, 2 cups of water, 1/2 tsp. sugar

* Blend at the lowest speed until it is completely mixed and the consistency of a thin milk shake (add water if necessary)

* Paint the mixture onto wherever you'd like your moss to grow

Here are a few more detailed sites for you... Ideas Factory & Heavy Petal. For some inspiration, check out the work of street artist Edina Tokodi.

this is pretty awesome. reminds me of something I saw in Giant Robot a while back about someone who was cutting designs into huge hedges in Los Angeles. topiary graffiti. it was pretty cool, but there was definitely part of me (the homeowner with landscape issues part) that was like, dang, it'll take forever for that to grow back. this moss graffiti seems a lot friendlier. ;)
