In a dream-combination of sustainability and mobility, Brooklyn based artist Kevin Cyr has taken the idea of a mobile home to a new level. He has created two concept designs that swap gasoline fueled vehicles with human power as the force that propels movable living structures.
His Camper Kart examines habitats and housing; recycling and ecology; exploration and mobility by fusing a pop-up camper with a shopping cart. And the Camper Bike, which is actually a functioning sculptural piece, continues this idea by taking an in-bed truck trailer and putting it on top of a serious looking 3 wheeled bicycle.
While neither one of these inventions may be practical for most people, they do show off some interesting possible living alternatives.
If you want to see Cyr’s work in person, he has an upcoming show in Provincetown, MA, which opens this Friday.
Shepard Fairey visited Pittsburgh last week for an event held by the Warhol Museum. bittersweetharvest.blogspot.com has posted a bunch of great photos of OBEY pieces that have popped up around town.
The Post Gazette caught Shepard installing his piece across from the Warhol for a short interview.

Yuken Teruya manipulates everyday objects, transforming their meanings to reflect on contemporary society and culture. Cutting trees out of paper bags and cardboard toilet paper rolls, he creates meticulous and intricate art works, small and enchanting worlds, which relate to broader concerns. In each bag and roll, the shape of a tree is created without adding or removing anything, just by cutting out and folding the paper from the bag itself. Teruya’s works explore issues such as the growing consumerism of contemporary society, depleting natural resources and other problems associated with globalism, including the threat it poses to localized cultural traditions and identities. http://www.yukenteruyastudio.com
