A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Trouble, your story about not taking a photo reminds me of just about every concert I've been to recently where I am surrounded by people watching the show through the broken glass screen of their iPhone as if they are going to be the VERY FIRST person to post video of the bands live set on YouTube.

i've given up taking photo and video because the quality i can get on my phone is so bad, plus i'm not a very talented photographer or videographer...it's just a total loss for me when i step outside a show to take a picture.

@PKNY, I think people have simply forgotten how to enjoy being out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am tim from champaign:

That would be fun seeing a Banksy piece in action. I dig what Banksy does a whole lot more than Shepherd Fairey. In fact, I strongly dislike Fairey's art. Co-opting iconic images and the work of others, then becoming litigious when others rip off his artwork leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I'm glad he got the book thrown at him for ripping off the AP Obama image.

I think the rule for press photographers that some bands give - you can only shoot 2-4 songs, is a good rule for amateurs too.

see people just taking photos of the art and then walking away! Look at it! Breath it! Smell it! FEEL IT!

I think a photo here and there is OK. But does the world really need tons of shitty phone videos of every performance?

Our Photoshop class likes Banksy, but not Shepherd Fairey so much. It's not the first time he's had the book thrown at him, either.

I was at RISD the same time Shep was there. He got into trouble for defacing a Buddy Cianci billboard while in school. Book throwing started early for him. Did community service, I think.

@PKNY, Yah, I usually take a couple of photos just to have that bit of nostalgia when I flip through photos. Sort of like keeping the ticket stub. I am under no illusion that I am documenting the show.

I know I am an old fart but I absolutely detest graffiti and it's really hard for me to put Banksy and Fairey into some category above common vandal.
Avatar 11:45am Cecile:

I like graffiti if it is good.
So much of it is so crappy.

And objectively, no matter how much I love good graffiti, there cant' be grafiiti in or on a bus or train, because then no one wants to ride it. It has been proven time and time again.

There are several businesses here that let graffiti artists do a wall, and they are ever-changing and often quite beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am tim from champaign:

@jennique - very interesting. What was Shep like in school? I have no problem with appropriation but Fairey never seems to give credit where credit is due. Most interviews I've seen/read of Fairey, he seems to smugly come from a place of privilege.

I am hooked on william Onyeabor. This song is classic. Have you heard Fantastic Man? It is hysterical. He is so direct. The guy wants some praise for his appearance because he tells her how pretty she is all the time.

i don't think shepard fairy should not have used that AP pic, its out there in the ether. and how is he supposed to get a snap of obama? he screwed up by lying etc but the laws are not for free sharing of info. did jeff koons lose his case with the swiss tourist postcard and the puppies ceramic sculpture? i can't remember. but similar thang
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am northguineahills:

Most building owners welcome Banksy's art b/c they can either sell it, or it increases the building's value. See when some tagger 'defaced' a Bansky work the super from the building tackled the tagger (a few weeks ago in Williamsburg).
Avatar 11:48am ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Cecile - I am so grateful that all this digital media did not exist when i went to college. And I had lots of fun too.
Tim - he was a bit standoffish to me, but otherwise okay. He had a skateboarding crew and was always out skating with the boys. I went to a party at the house he shared with 5 or 6 other guys and saw that he built a half pipe in his bedroom, which took up the whole room. There were scuffs on the ceiling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am braveness23:

If it is in a place where it is permitted and encouraged I have no problem with it, even if its bad. I've watched my city get tagged on just about every surface imaginable over the last decade by about 2 dozen would be "artists" and its sickening. One of our most prolific taggers got sentenced yesterday with pretty hefty penalties.

...the thing about Graffiti is Who Owns the Environment - the Legal Property Owners or the People just want to Decorate &/or Sign the space they actually live in - Warhol saying he pointed soup 'cause he ate the damned stuff everyday & he & Lichtenstein did comics @ the same time 'cuse they read them! I see the point if it's ugly though - but I like what Banksy does - can't seeing getting uptight about it...My personal point of view is Art is essential to Human Beings just like food & dollars & property rights...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am tim from champaign:

@Trouble - I think it was a-ok for Fairey to use the Obama image, it's the lying and not giving credit that bugs me. Kinda like Jimmy Page suing Schooly D for sampling Kashmir, yet the early Led Zep albums are full of songs credited to Page/Plant but were straight up rip offs of other musicians.

Oh I love art and public murals. Art is not optional. Cincinnati is putting up AMAZING murals all over the place and I gush when I see them. But for some self appointed asshole to spray paint his name on every surface in the city is not art by most peoples standards.

I think our class has the problem with not him not using the photo, but not throwing some money toward a working photographer. I am scrupulous about CC licenses in my classwork, and buy credits from canstockphoto.com for photos I can't find on Wikimedia. I want people to commission or buy my work - I have to start by supporting other artists.

Futura 3000 once said that he thought graffiti was kids' way of saying "hi" to the city.
