MobiSpray at Art Basel 2009

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

MobiSpray was this year shown at Art Basel - but not in the traditional way as all the other artworks were, no, I hi-jacked the event and put it up in guerilla manner, in the MobiLenin style. Check out some of my trophies below. I’ll put up a video a bit later. I found the Art Basel this year highly inspiring and really worth visiting. I met many interesting people and had good talks.

Every evening I painted the citiy of Basel in some location that I was tempted to change into the looks as I want it. Here, I painted at the Marktplatz.

Painting the city wherever I go

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

I love it to be able to make my environment look as I want it to be. It is liberating. Because of this I started to embrace the cities and places I go these days much more than I ever did. It is fascinating to be able to change the looks of my reality. I feel the world is giving me a lot - it inspires me, heavily. And I want to turn this inspirational energy into something new, unexpected, kicking - my MobiSpray paintings.

During the last few weeks I had the chance to travel to New York, Melbourne, Sydney, London and Vancouver. And to give you a quick overview of my creations in various places, I put up here a few collages up. Enjoy!

Guggenheim Museum in New York painted by MobiLenin with MobiSpray

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

The best ever mobispraying that I did so far was the Guggenheim museum in New york. It had the right size, is purly white and is completely dark at night. But above all it has such a fascinating shape that it makes you wanna mobispray forever.

I believe one day I will need to go back to paint Guggenheim again, because it is real fascination to do it.

UFO Houses in Taiwan & Mobispray

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

When I was in Taiwan in August to teach there, I had to visit the world famaous UFO houses at Sanjhih, north of Taipei - since it was closeby where we stayed - in ‘uncle Lee’s house’. My greatest wish was to MobiSpray on the UFO houses, and so I did or lets say we did. I invited a few friends from the MIT Media Lab with whom I stayed with in Taiwan to come with me.

Watch the video:

And we had an extraordinary experience. When we entered the site the wind was blowing strangely and strong, but also the grass made loud noises caused by the wind. And of course it was dark, since it was night as we wanted to use MobiSpray to make some UFO houses look as we wanted them to be. For one of our Taiwanese fellow girl it become too eerie after a short time, so she left. The rest of us set up the gear and we started spraying - and it was totally exiting to mobispray on this weirdly, but nicely designed UFO houses.

I learned originally about the UFO houses a few days before leaving to Taiwan through an article in the German online magazin Spiegel: http://einestages.spiegel.de. Title of the article was ‘Die Geisterstadt der Außerirdischen’ meaning the ghost city of the aliens. And of course the shape of the UFO-houses was something I had to try out as canvas for MobiSpray.
