                • The Wall: London's most public gallery


                  from Village Underground Added 563 3 1

                  More info: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1656940722/the-wall-londons-most-public-g... Our Project We're turning 5 years old here at Village underground, and in celebration we've decided to try and make a dream happen. We want to build London's most public gallery. For years this immense wall on Great Eastern Street has been host to many artists painting in the wall's 4m X 3m recesses, they're oddly like natural picture frames, from Steve Powers and Shepard Fairy to incredibly talented local artists. We want to evolve this informal project, turning it into an amazing permanent art space. Why We're Coming to Kickstarter To do this, we need to design, build and install bullet proof metal and glass frames over the recesses to protect the art work from theft and vandalism. Importantly, this means that artists can paint on board and canvas so the work can be kept. Its been really tough over the years to see such amazing work lost as the next artist paints over it. Saving the art work will mean that artists can sell their pieces and earn a living. That's obviously important, but it also means that we can exhibit art that's not just painting -- photography, digital art, mixed media, even interactive work: This takes the wall onto a whole new level. Staying True We've always been steadfast in remaining independent and much of what we do at Village Underground is on a not-for-profit basis. Supporting artists and providing an open and alternative space for culture is why we get out of bed in the morning. We've fought off the offers from advertising companies who what to use the wall, we want to raise our own money rather than having a corporate sponsor. How it Will Work We'll invite guest curators and artists to contribute, programming The Wall with the same mixed-art approach as venue of Village Underground itself. Established artists will exhibit next to emerging ones, international artists next to locals. We're also creating The Digital Wall that will take the project much further afield. The Digital Wall will allow artists from all around the world to upload their own work in a bid to have exhibition time on the physical wall, this means we can go global, from New York to Istanbul. Art lovers can log onto the Digital Wall to follow this international stream of creativity, as well as download or order affordable art prints. This will generate income for both the artists and for the ongoing project costs, as well as Village Underground's social programme of supporting young talent. London traffic stats state that over 10 million cars pass The Wall every year - that's more 'visitors' than Tate, The National Gallery and The Barbican combined. Add to that a few million more passengers, pedestrians and cyclists, and you'll start to see why we're more than a little excited about our plans. That's why we need your help. A huge thank you from Auro, Abi and Orlando and all of us at Village Underground And if you're interested, you learn more about who we are and what we do here: www.villageunderground.co.uk

                  • Barbican Fingers - Entrance 13 - Where Barbican meets Barbican


                    from Adriana Valdez Young Added 18 0 0

                    The most seamless interface between a Barbican pedestrian bridge and a stairwell to the Tube entrance. It's an area where people stand around to smoke and check their mobiles. Maybe they are waiting for people? Maybe they are avoiding going to work? Nearby, they can eat sandwiches at Pret, extract cash from Barclays, pick up their dry cleaning and take care of other daily necessities that integrate well with moving through the city. Guy and I detected a strong lavender scent on the sidewalk that seemed to be emitting from the sky above and not from any particular individual or commercial entity.

                      from Adriana Valdez Young Added 82 0 0

                      This Rolls Royce, complete with attentive chauffeur, waited immediately in a self-made VIP parking space outside the main entrance to the Barbican Centre. Silk Street also has connotations of refinement and luxury, so it only seems appropriate that the Rolls Royce park here, as opposed to some of the less glamorous and less obvious entrances to the Barbican. Its presence also exacerbates a condition we had observed, which is that the language of the pavement seemed to speak to cars and not people. The immediate interior of the public entrance to the Barbican Centre is quiet austere and lacking in warmth, feeling much like an airport or hospital in tone, texture and lighting. Why does the Barbican save all of its warm reds and oranges, brass and wood for the belly of the theater? Could it entice the public with just a little warmth from the entrance? We think that this entrances needs a lot of help.
