Our favorite street artist is back in NYC!
BANKSY TAKES ON THE STREETS OF NY
Banksy has taken his new month long show “Better In Than Out” to the streets of New York.
You can get your fix each day as the work gets posted to the Instagram account, @Banksyny. There are all sorts of fun goodies that tie into the show… there’s a twitter account, an official website, a hashtag #banksyny and a toll-free phone number found next to each piece (1800-656-4271 #1, #2 #3) that provides an audio tour to complement the art.
If you can see the pieces in person, all the better. But I’d do it quickly, some people have a penchant for Banksy cover ups. But here are the first three days…

Jake Barton's stirring TED talk about building collective memory and his work on the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, lending whole new meaning to the notion that "a museum is an institution dedicated to making connections."
The story that begins at 8:01 is nothing short of remarkable.

Colorful optical illusions by Georges Rousse
“The final photographic image perturbs our visual habits and convictions by presenting three kinds of space: the real space, where he makes his installations; an imaginary utopian space, which the artist invents and then carefully builds at his chosen site; and a new space that is visible from only one spot when he clicks the camera shutter, and exists only in the photo.”

Storytelling underpins everything we do here at Learned Evolution. That’s why we’re huge fans of #CannesLions Living 3D Billboard: a recent collaboration between Incredible Machines and Twitter at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
Using curated tweets and images hashtagged #CannesLion, Incredible Machines repurposed a wall from the iconic Palais de Festivals to serve as a realtime installation of generative animations.
Let the video speak for the greatness itself.

Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame by TRAHAN Architects
The Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame in historic Natchitoches merges two contrasting collections formerly housed in a university coliseum and a nineteenth century courthouse, elevating the visitor experience for both. Set in the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase on the banks of the Cane River Lake, the design mediates the dialogue between sports and history, past and future, container and contained. The museum is configured to interpret athletics as a component of cultural history. While sports and regional history may appeal to different audiences, the exhibits and configuration explore interconnections between the two. The spaces flow visually and physically together, arranged to accommodate state-of-the-art exhibits, education, and assembly and support functions. The internal organization is an extension of the existing meandering urban circulation. The pathway branches throughout the first level galleries and classrooms, and winds its way upward, concluding at a veranda overlooking and reconnecting to the historic town square.
