JustSeeds Update


We're starting to feel spring coming along, and itching to get outside. Sometimes it's hard to stay inspired during the winter months and keep creating, but thankfully there's enough of us here to keep churning out the art.

The blog is still chugging along, and we're working hard to make it a destination for anyone wanting to read about the intersection of art and politics.

Major San Francisco Archives Update

At long last, all the San Francisco backlog is now online. New archives have been created. The Strangers and Claire posed major issues for my current organizational skills, but I think I have weeded out most of the loose ends and duplicate photos. Since I photograph stencils at a higher resolution, I decided to make low resolution versions of all the files. This created quicker upload times, and allowed me to do all of this in one day.

Still have backlog for other archives, but nothing as out of control as my San Francisco pile was.

8600+ photos and counting, so start clicking!

I went through the SF archives and moved items around, deleted a few duplicates, etc. So if you're missing your favorite stencil pic, it may be somewhere else. Search for it if you can remember the filename.

NYTimes: One Wall Down, Thousands to Paint

March 2, 2008
Heads Up | Berlin
One Wall Down, Thousands to Paint

SPRAY cans clink in Ali’s bag as he walks down a cobblestone street in Berlin’s post-hip neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg. He stops in front of a grocery truck parked near a children’s playground and pulls out a can. With a fluid motion, he strokes his name in bubbly, bright red letters, before leaving his mark on a telephone booth, a dozen doors and a concrete wall next to the train tracks.

"It’s a great feeling doing a piece at night and coming back the day after to look at it,” said Ali, 31, an industrial designer who was dressed in baggy pants and a black hoodie and didn’t want his surname used to avoid prosecution. “I also see it as reclaiming the city and shaping my urban environment.”
