Went to the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven today. On my way to the exposition of the graduates of the academy I say this kind of tricycle cannon. One for Our World Tuesday here.

The grim reaper

Yesterday we had our yearly 3D-Festival. The most paintings were not ready yet so we have to go back another time but this one with its maker was already clearly visible. One for Monday Murals here.

The neighborhood where I grew up in Amsterdam but in that time no parked cars on the streets.

Never thought I'd see a woven wooden fence in an urban environment. Let alone also painted black. Wonder if it is a hobby from the owner. Really nice one for Good Fences here.

They enjoy themselves even in somewhat sad circumstances as removing the trees before your house.

Ai Weiwei 2

In March 2012 Ai Weiwei placed lanterns on the surveillance cameras that surrounded his house in Beijing. The peaceful protest recalls Flower Power , an image token in 1967 on the moment when a protester against US involvement in the Vietnam War placed carnations into the rifle barrel of a National Guardsman. With great irony Ai addresses the question of surveillance in China by decorating the cameras with a symbol of the country’s festive tradition. The whole wall was further covered with an arm with an attached hand with the middle finger in different groups. You can say that it was a kind of mural here. (Exhibition in Foam)
It really covered all the walls. One for Monday Murals here.

Autumn sky.

After the blue skies of the last weeks now we are getting a more grey sky with a lot lower temperatures and if the lake is just near your house why not a little snapshot of it. One for Skywatch Friday here.

Ai Weiwei

As a political refugee under constant surveillance by the Chinese government the artist feels related to the growing flow of refugees trying to reach Europe. Since his first visit to the Greek island of Lesbos in December 2015, Ai Weiwei visited refugee camps in Syria, Turkey, Italy, France and other major refuges. (Text from the exhibition #SafePassage at Foam).
Must say as showing so many pictures you are indeed a bit despondent to the problem of refugees and Ai Weiwei is indeed very clear and capable to lay his finger on the sore spots.
