Buildings get old—most office towers aren't designed to stand for centuries, as they once were. In Tokyo, a team of artists and curators got permission to interrupt this a near-perpetual cycle of construction and demolition by throwing one last party inside a tower destined for the scrap heap.
If you had to pinpoint one single reason the internet became such an integral part of our day-to-day lives, the obvious answer would be animated GIFs. They're what make staring at a screen all day long completely worth your morning commute. But now, a couple of artists have finally found a way to put animated GIFs…
If you visit the elementary school in Terracina, Italy, you're going to be a little bit tripped it out. As of a month or two ago, several small children appear to be standing sideways on the building's façade. But obviously, children cannot defy gravity.

Graffiti may be ephemeral, but then there's Google Street View with its all-seeing camera. Inspired by Google's recent to move to let users go back in time in Street View, Brian Foo at the New York Public Library Labs thought he could make us look at street graffiti from a new perspective—through time.
For the past two years, the Panthéon in Paris has been undergoing a renovation, its signature dome wrapped in a cute little plastic hat.

Banksy, the mysterious (er, kind of mysterious) British street artist who popularized stencils in the 2000s, is in New York this month to stage a 30-day exhibit that takes place entirely on the streets.

Remember NeverWet, that incredibly amazing spray-on substance that keeps things from getting wet? Turns out it's great for making street art that stays invisible until it rains.
Unlike grown-ups who’ve had their wildest creative impulses edited, judged, and generally tamped down for years, kids are pretty fearless when it comes to facing a blank page. Wielding crayons with reckless abandon ain’t no thang for the little 'uns, but a bit of artistic guidance can be fun, too.
Paint, paste, and stencil-wielding creative types who use the urban fabric as their canvas are having a heyday. Folks like Shephard Fairey, Banksy, and a whole host of others (Hanksy!) have had feature films, major gallery shows, and endless internet posts chronicling—and celebrating—their efforts.
