(Video) Print After Party
Street Artist Posterchild and Jason Eppink have created "after parties" for print inside newspaper boxes.
Street Artist Posterchild and Jason Eppink recently stuffed several empty newspaper boxes full of colorful LED’s, disco balls, cut-out silhouettes and small radios to create “after parties” celebrating the end (or decline) of print.
Eppink descibes the work:
Abandoned by floundering media conglomerates, thousands of neglected newsracks command valuable real estate on busy street corners across New York City, remnants of diminishing demand and a disintegrating economy. Many have already been reclaimed and transformed by urban alchemists, whether as canvases for stickers and paint or clever conceptual works that turn the once important vessels of information into repositories for garbage.
