On April 25th of this year 500 liters of waterbased environmentally-friendly paint were dumped in the intersection of Rosenthaler Platz in Berlin, Germany. A different color was spilled at each traffic light: chimney red, purple violet, cyan blue, and lemon yellow. From there, the vehicular traffic supplied the "brushstrokes" that brought the image together. For months citizens wondered whether it was artwork or a guerilla advertising campaign. It was in fact the work of Dutch performance artist IEPE, with an anonymous crew. The project is titled "Painting Reality - A Brushstroke by Society." To follow the link to the video, click here.

wow great idea and beautiful ending.....interesting as I grew up during the period of "Earthworks" 80s and 90s, and this has a nice feel to it, which describes the new style of living, the life people spend in their cars and the marks they leave! Nice Heather Fox Fire Glass
