Here Is New York… Puddle Jumping and Snowbank Hopping

Posted on January 31, 2015

It’s been a rough week on the street, mainly for walking.

They lay there waiting for you, these murky masses of muddy mirth, lurking and winking under cover of blinking city lights and hundreds of reflections, still as ice, lying in wait, camouflaged as street. One must be vigilant not to fall for it, or into it. Newly arrived New Yorkers suffer a winter or two before getting the hang of jumping into the street without jumping into the path of a car or bike or a senior with a cane. We pine for the snowstorm and revel in the snow day – but once we have it, we don’t know what to do with it.

Remember that story a few years ago about the opera patron arriving at the Met who mistook slush for sidewalk and plunged her evening heels deep into a puddle of water, ice, snow, and trash? She froze, literally, and figuratively before the cameras. For New York ladies with pristine pedicures and strappy stilettos stepping into a puddle of street sherbert is most definitely not a Marilyn Minter moment.

But puddle jumping is not only a necessity for the sleekly shod.  New York is a pedestrian city and we are an army of millions – with all sartorial styles, statements, and puddle-hopping abilities.  Navigating the sidewalks after a heavy snowstorm requires dexterity, flexibility, caution and a healthy sense of good humor. You WILL do gymnastics. It WILL be dramatic. You WILL not always be glamorous or handsomely dashing. Just try to stay up!

BSA Special Feature: Joe Caslin “Our Nation’s Sons”

A look at the many drawings Joe Caslin and his team installed throughout 2014 in his native Scotland. If you follow BSA a little, you may have seen a number of these pieces before, a social awareness campaign that addresses stereotyping and prejudice that all societies can relate to – the concept of “the other” is as old as the hills and as new as 2015. Caslin says the spoken word piece was written specifically for the project by Ms. Erin Fornoff.

 

Narcelio Grund: Ground Printer

 The latest invention from Narcelio Grud encircles you with rainbows. His creativity and imagination never is exhausted, even when the paint runs out.

 

Axel Void ASAP from TostFilms

Axel Void visited Puerto Rico a couple of weeks ago and did this painting of a boxer – a local hero, based on an old photograph. TostFilms created this brief and and effective stop action film to record it.

Andaluz The Artist pays tribute to the late Robin Williams

 Andaluz calls it “comically colorful”, his portrait of the comedian and actor Robin Williams, who passed away in the last year.

Spaik: Video Mapping Toluca, Mexico.

 Mexican muralist and Street Artist Spaik also is an animator and he helped to create an enormous animated show for an enthralled audience using video image mapping and historic buildings in Toluca.
