Art 45 – Nevermind the Bollards

Artipoeus visits Jennifer Abessira’s installation, “Don’t Think Twice,” at London Bridge Station in London, England.  I flew into Heathrow Airport for the first time since 1999, and didn’t recognize a thing — it’s so new and shiny and futuristic, I felt like Jason Bourne, trying to find.. Well, the exit.  I was going straight to the London Bop, the annual gathering of T.Rex fans and family, for a night of reunion and revelry and rock & roll.  But I had to take a cab to the Bop because the Tube would take too long, and also… well… there had just been a terrorist attack.  Again.

Art 44 – Say My Name

Artipoeus visits Françoise Shein and Barbara Reiter’s project Inscrire at the Westhafen Ubahn station, in Berlin.   If you are exiting the train at Westhafen, and want to go up to the Putlizbrücke that connects Moabit to Wedding, or transfer to the Ringbahn that circles town, you follow a little green “S” and an arrow that tells you where to go.  You pass big blocks of text on the wall, meaning… what?  Who knows?  Patterns of letters and images, primary colors, black block lettering that is neither beautiful nor un-beautiful, but factual and clear.  I don’t know what it means.  It’s just typography, which is ok if you’re into that kind of thing.  

I’m into that kind of thing.
