And now some environmental awareness
While browsing through the digital version of Dazed and Confused I came across an american artist named C. Finley who's working on a project involving the streets, or more correct the trash, of New York. With the Wallpaper Dumpster project Finley creates awareness on something we normally dont want to see, the dumpster, which, in Finley's world, is decorated with the most beautiful wallpaper she could find. In this modern age people just consume and consume, just throwing away the waste without considering the consequences. Finley wants us to rethink our consumerism and the way we treat the waste. As most enlightened people of today know the mother earth is in serious danger of becoming over-heated and over-polluted. We all need to react now. Similar activism can also be spotted on the streets of Stockholm, this cute little fellow we found at Tjärhovsgatan.
