Check out this music video for electro-rock trio ‘We Have Band’. What’s interesting is that the clip was actually created by an ad agency, Wieden + Kennedy London. And if that weren’t enough, all 4,816 frames that made the final cut have been uploaded to Flickr, thereby allowing people to re-edit the sequence as they see fit. Love it.

A burnt ice-cream van is among 100 works that Banksy has installed at Bristol’s museum, replacing many of the museum’s regular artifacts. According to the BBC, Banksy was quoted as saying, “This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off.”

As augmented reality becomes almost a thing of the past – Georgia Tech Augmented Environments Lab and the Savannah College of Art and Design have managed to push it further, well a few steps further. Using a grid mat, a mobile device and a pack of skittles, look how they have managed to take mobile gaming into the future. Say goodbye to Snake!

Another exhibition you might dig is the selected paintings and tapestries of Chuck Close now on show at another Chelsea gallery, PaceWildenstein. Below is an example of a tapestry and painting.

The Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea currently has an exhibition celebrating the eightieth year of Yayoi Kusama. If her name sounds familiar, that’s because she recently exhibited at the MCA and the MOMA. My fav is Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, an infinity room that will blow your mind. Check out it and her other work here.
