For our friend Katie Sokoler‘s latest project, she put up black shadows around the streets of Brooklyn, and then took well-timed photographs of the results. Check out her blog to see her process along with more photos.
Our friend Rob Cockerham recently organized an awesome nation-wide prank where pranksters replaced fast food job application pads with the ridiculous fake pads he made. The funniest part of the prank is definitely the application itself, which Rob did an excellent job writing. Check out his site to see how he pulled it off and to read the hilarious questions he included. The Fast Food Job Application Prank at Cockeyed.
I was one of the dozen volunteers who helped spread the applications to fast food joints across the country. Check out the documentation of my personal conquest.
Perhaps our most requested Toronto event in New York, we are pleased to finally be able to bring the Dayglo Lightsaber Battle to New York City! Thanks to the help of the New York University Program Board.
3,000 blacklight-reactive, meter-long cardboard tubes will be distributed in Washington Square’s Teen Plaza, where there will be massive blacklight cannons aimed at the crowd! Wear black, neon or both. The battle will continue until every tube is destroyed!

Helmut Smits figured out a way to add a “dead pixel” to Google Earth. He created a 82 x 82cm burned square, the size of one pixel from an altitude of one kilometer.
Dan Witz recently put up some new work on his site. The new series In Plain View builds off of last year’s Ugly New Buildings series. The above photo features a fake metal grate installed on a random door somewhere in Raleigh, NC.
Not only should you stop, you should fuck off as well.

I recently spotted this awesome shadow street art on the side of the Rite Aid on 24th Street at 8th Avenue in New York. It looks even cooler at night. Anyone know who did it?
This caught my eye in Union Square a couple of weeks ago. From a distance I thought I might have stumbled onto a Mark Jenkins tape sculpture. He’s in town with a solo show at Stricola. It turned out that the dummy was the work of a group of high school students from the Lyons Community School in Brooklyn. I caught them watching me and went over to investigate. They were doing this Jenkins-inspired project for a class and were there to observe people’s reactions. Cool!
