BSA Special Feature: INDIGENO – Torino 2022 / Via Il Cerchio E Le Gocce
Oh the self-possessed, funky style and ease that the Italians have as they stroll through this video with a dirty soul guitar twang and a punchy drum track laying the backdrop for them. With each of this year’s inaugural INDIGENO Festival artists in Torino giving a brief narrative about their work, the camera pulls, sweeps, floats, zooms and shudders with equal amounts of smoothness and swagger. Hopefully, the mural art lives up to the dramatic presentation. It does.
INDIGENO – Torino 2022 / Via Il Cerchio E Le Gocce
Procez – Berlin Metro Graffiti via Spray Daily
A video postcard from Berlin and their signature yellow public metro trains, each festooned by a different writer against a dark party bass beat. The interspersals of comedic bits of video make it human, or, in the case of two pigeons going at it on a train platform in broad daylight, animal.
The End of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch / The Ocean Cleanup
Let this mark the beginning of the end for the Great Pacific Garbage Patch… Yes, there is the 3rd World War well underway, but we can still focus on positive solutions to human-made problems. Can you?
