Multicolored Disappearing Horizon on Williamsburg Bridge
It’s summer and people are taking to the streets with their art. If you have taken a stroll or skateboard ride across the Williamsburg Bridge recently, you’ve seen a public art installation entitled “Baji Lives!”.
In this short film by Danielle Barbiari, five friends show how a collaborative project can also come alive with very modest resources and some elbow grease.
“During the wee hours of a warm summer night, several friends conspired to bring color to the Williamsburg Bridge. Inspired by the unique vantage point offered by this public space, Baji Lives! responded with a site-specific composition that accentuates the spatial dynamics of the pedestrian pathway. This piece is an offering to those who use the bridge”
CAKE on Juxtapoz : New “Back Talk” Conversation
To introduce readers to some of the Street Artists in the upcoming show “Street Art Saved My Life: 39 New York Stories”, BSA asked a number of the artists to take part in “Back Talk” with one of our most trusted and underground and sweet sources for modern art, Juxtapoz.
Today we hear from CAKE.
