“nstallation is easy. Just download the ZIP file, decompress it and import the contents into iPhoto. The tiles should automatically import in the proper order, starting with the top left tile, down to the bottom right tile (plus one more for the map key) . To be sure they have, resize your iPhoto thumbnails so you can see only four across at a time; together, they should look more or less like New York City. Create a new album called something like “Subway,” drag the newly imported images into it, and set your iPhone to sync with that album via iTunes. Then buy yourself a MetroCard and take the subway.”
Go Huge and get props from your friends, randoms, and the media alike. The Diesel Wall “is an international art contest that aims to bring intriguing/inspiring/insightful/inciting contemporary ideas to giant urban canvases in city centres around the world.” So I am thinking maybe a huge Faile collage would work, maybe Shepard could have a go. Espo could get wordy, Kr could make it drip. A mega Large Format photo would also be dope. Anyway, more on the contest here. The New York deadline is the 12th of may.

Street installations are the new street art.
