Say Something Nice (12 Photos, 1 video)

Say Something Nice is a project placed in public places in New York City. The project itself has three main elements: a wooden lectern, a megaphone holster and an attached sign that read, “Say Something Nice.” Since the lectern was in a very high-traffic area, people immediately started to take notice, stopping to read the sign. It didn't take long for people to start sharing their thoughts and positive comments towards NYC.  To understand the full effect of the project, watch the video at the end of the page.



Haute Couture Ain't So Hot (5 Photos, 1 Video)

"Poses", a performance created by the Spanish artist Yolanda Dominguez is a dark parody directly criticizing the artificial and plastic fashion industry. Dominguez had women holding dramatic and exaggerated fashion poses in public places and let them 'freeze that pose for a substantial period of time.


The video is a must-watch to understand on what the Poses were based on.
