Watch where you step
As you might have noticed, I´m pasting up artwork made of brown packing tape on street lamps since a while now. Although I get around I´m not traveling as often and as far as I want to though. Therefore I would like to involve YOU in this mission to get more tapes out there and up on street lamps and windows around the world. It doesn’t cost you a thing. Just apply by writing me an email to email@example.com and with a little luck you´ll get a nice little piece of street art in your mail and can decide yourself where to stick it (read below how to apply).

What happens when you give thousands of stickers to thousands of kids
This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12.

The "Say yes to drugs" experiment
Back in the day, drugs like LSD were new and exciting and seemingly full of potential. The U.S. and British armies thought that these new drugs could have use in warfare. So, they recruited their own soldiers to indulge in huge amounts of acid and weed in order to monitor the effects.
The Harsh Reality
One of the theories the military wanted to test was that you could feed your own recruits enough drugs to drive them to suicide. And they weren't giving them the recreational stuff; we're talking military weapons grade hallucinogens.
The military insists nobody suffered long-term harm from the experiment, though their files indicate one guy talked with imaginary friends for days at a time and another played with invisible kittens for hours. The main thing the military wanted to know was if soldiers could still fight under the influence of LSD, and determined that, yes, tripping soldiers were still capable of violence. We're thinking there was probably no pleasant way to find that out.
Also, some soldiers sued the military years later, claiming the government-issue LSD caused them memory loss, hallucinations and "homicidal urges." The courts ruled against them, on the basis that if some dudes ask you to drop a ton of acid so they can see what happens to you, and you say yes, you deserve what you get.
