Billboard ART “Billboard Bombing” Keith Haring, ‘Crack is Wack’
Charles Mary Kubricht, Alive-Nesses: Proposal for Adaptation, at the Northern most end of the High Line • Painting black and white patterns, Kubricht attempts to mimic “dazzle,” a type of camouflage in the animal world and in military design, on large storage containers. Similar to black and white zebra stripes, which confuse the locations of individuals in a herd, this camouflage was also used on ships to disorient the enemy during World War I in Britain. At the High Line, Kubricht’s designs, however, do not blend into their environment but stand out instead. The designs cause a disruption in the fabric of the city and in your view from the High Line.
