Eye in the Sky, Hole in the Ground

Postcommodity’s Raven Chacon on art without borders

By Sam Adams
Toward the end of 2012, arts collective Postcommodity intends to raise 20 acrylic balloons that are 10 feet in diameter parallel to the U.S.-Mexico border. "Part of this project is that it's this kind of sculptural piece," says Raven Chacon, "this kind of fence, which will run along the border. But part of it is performance in a way of us having to navigate what is safe to be called a battlefield."

Dogma Style

Review by Margaret Wright
Heather Rutman’s handbook on female hedonism is a vapid, substance-feuled journey into the mind of a despicable sociopath.

Operation Art Box Returns

Regardless of how adept your street art skills are, if you decide to go guerilla and throw up a piece in a prominent public location, chances are it'll get buffed pretty quick. Murals and sculpture are some of the most aesthetically alluring components to this city's streets. But government grants notwithstanding, it’s hard to manufacture public art in a way that’ll have a widely recognized, lasting effect.
