In one of Filthy Lucre’s latest projects, he added eyes to trees and bushes in the public space. They “eyes” are really just dots painted on while balloons. Both of these photos were taken in Salamanca, Spain.

The Golden Ass

July 31, 2008

Street artist Mark Jenkins makes, among other things, awesome human sculptures out of tape and then dresses them and puts them in public places. His latest project is The Golden Ass. In an area of Barcelona packed with “golden statue” type street performers, he constructed a sculpture that looked like a human in a horse costume. Everyone who encountered it assumed it was a performer being incredibly still.

He writes:

“…it’s much easier to make pretend people than to pretend to be a sculpture all day.”

Most of the twins could not make the day and time of the mission, but we were delighted to have 8 pairs turn out, nearly all of whom had never participated in one of our missions before.
