F**kn Die ; Jaye Moon Talks Tough on BKLN Streets

Street Artist Jaye Moon has some choice words to share on Brooklyn streets, which are no stranger to coursing curses rolling off turgid tongues with  tantalizing invective – especially when you are fighting for a parking space or are cut off by a bike rider or when getting a slice of pizza or mailing a letter or tying your shoe. Today it appears that New Yorkers are sort of enamored with words that were once vulgar or verboten – we’re just trying to squeeze that last little bit of shock value out of them before they join the language as mere verbs and nouns.

The irony of spelling it out with Legos in saturated bubblegum pink and grape and almost-neon green and wrapping them around a tree limb is just one more great way to give the ol’ middle finger to your fellow New Yorker – a refracted derivation from the (in comparison) more traditional aerosol screed sprayed across a wall by the bristling graffiti writer or aggrieved anarchist.

Candy coated and rigidly high gloss, these new housing complexes in the heart of DUMBO are also ironic because of the real estate development that has metamorphosed this moribund industrial waterfront neighborhood in just 20 years. Installed just in time for the DUMBO Arts Festival last weekend, where tens of thousands of public art fans could see her tree houses at eye level or just above, we’re still not clear if she was part of the official program, but what the f**k – People seem to love them so fuggedaboutit.
