Sunflower Seeds on Sunflower Seeds

Iocose have catapulted four real sunflower seeds into Ai Weiwei’s exhibit at the Tate Modern. The group of artists now claim that the original 100 million porcelain seeds have become part of their new artwork, titled Sunflower Seeds on Sunflower Seeds. Here’s a video of the event taking place. When I heard that the exhibit had been closed off from visitors feet I no longer had any interesting seeing the exhibit but now… I think I would again!

Up (Premake)

I must have watched Up 50 times (with my little girl of course). I never get bored of it but have wondered if it could have been even better if it had been a live action film given how convincing it could have been with current CGI technology. I never imagined it would look like this great 1965 “premake” though. [via]

How to Sell a Banksy

How to sell a Banksy looks like it should be an interesting film. Not just because it’s just about Banksy though; the whole idea is intriguing to me. In the meantime, watch Untitled (trailer here). [via]

Banksy’s work now reportedly changes hands for millions. But he puts up his street art for free. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got your hands on one of these? Does it mean you’ve found a winning lottery ticket or just scraped some worthless crap off a wall? Going up against the Art Establishment, Critics, Auction Houses, Gallery Owners and Authentication Boards in a quest for the elusive meal ticket, two filmmakers unwittingly gatecrash the murky and protective world of Banksy.“How to Sell a Banksy” raises questions of ownership, authentication and the true value of art itself. Through all the chaos and incompetence comes a modern-day, true-story, crime-theft, comedy-caper.
