COOL HUNTING

Street Memes Walking Tour

by Josh Rubin in Culture on 15 October 2004

Eyebeam created a new web site at streetmemes.com to track street art, stickers, stencils, posters and visual memes (self-replicating ideas) that are posted, copied and mutated in the streets of New York and around the world. Very exciting, though I can't help but wonder whether spelling it all out for the general public defeats the whole purpose of subversive and esoteric street art.

Anyway, as part of tomorrow's Fall For Chelsea one-day-only community arts festival there will be a Street Meme walking tour and scavenger hunt originating from Eyebeam's facility at 540 W 21st Street between 10th & 11th Avenues at 1, 3 and 5pm. More info here.
