I have found that this actually works with my capstone research...but it is global in that it lists applications that teachers can use to help students learn to navigate social media and the ever evolving technologies stemming from media advances.

Cellograff: Wall-Free Graffiti Sprayed on Clear Cellophane | Urbanist

Cellograff: Wall-Free Graffiti Sprayed on Clear Cellophane | Urbanist | Artistic Development, Globalization, and Environmental Art | Scoop.it
Tagging is typically considered an urban art. At the very least you need walls to write on, right? Not necessarily - there are translucent alternatives, too.

Via Thomas Faltin
Lindsey Lindgren's insight:

My favorite graffiti method so far..Cellograff is when cellophane is temporary installed in different environments (urban and natural). The works are temporary and can be removed instantly. But the intention of the work is to redirect the viewer and audience to view their space differently. The medium allows the artists to work quickly and not leave a permanent mark.

Berlin Street Art - How Graffiti Has Destoyed A Great German City | Nate Robert

Berlin Street Art - How Graffiti Has Destoyed A Great German City | Nate Robert | Artistic Development, Globalization, and Environmental Art | Scoop.it


I’m rarely negative on Yomadic. Mainly, because I’ve been travelling for five months, three continents, and a big handful of countries – so far.  I’ve gained a big serving of perspective on the world we all live in. Which brings me to Berlin. If there’s one thing I truly can’t be negative about – its Berlin street art. Call it graffiti if you will. I’ll continue to call it street art in this article. I have no preference. Either way, I find it difficult to think of a single example of street art or graffiti that has negatively effected any city, on any country, on Earth. When I say “destroyed”, I mean it. As in “we destroyed that breakfast buffet, that bacon was unbelievable!”. It’s street slang thang. People, it’s time for some perspective. Cities around the world spend a sizeable fortune every day, removing street art and graffiti in the name of cleanliness and beautification. As with most things I disagree with, I can only assume this is due to the wishes of a vocal minority. Most cities have far higher priorities than removing graffiti – which by it’s very nature is temporary. Indeed, in an Ironic twist, London authorities are now spending serious cash to protect some street art from decay, such is the appeal. Copenhagen Denmark, a success story when it comes to urban planning, embraces street art. As does Berlin. Berlin street art is, in a word, prolific. In areas like Friedrichshain – a hip inner city Berlin district – tags, paintings, murals, political statements, fine art, and sculpture cover everything from houses to shop fronts, to trains and historical monuments. Sometimes, cars. And unless there had been an enormous influx of artists in the last few weeks, it’s safe to say nobody is too interested in removing any of the art.


Via Thomas Menk
Lindsey Lindgren's insight:

This German area is an example of when graffiti is not art, but destructive. The message and purpose for graffiti should be one that is positive and encouraging. The negative messages are not what art is about. I think in some areas of the US there is a similar struggle to make graffiti a medium to present positive messages. Instead there are gangs that use the medium to mark territories.

Margaux Lange’s Brilliant Plastic Body Art Jewelry Collection | Artistic Development, Globalization, and Environmental Art | Scoop.it

Margaux Lange’s Plastic Body Series art jewelry collection utilizes salvaged Barbie doll parts in combination with sterling silver and pigmented resins. The series is a result of Lange’s desire to re-purpose mass produced materials into handmade, wearable art. It is meant to examine and celebrate her own as well as pop culture’s relationship with the icon known simply as: Barbie.


Via Andrea Zeitz
Lindsey Lindgren's insight:

Margaux Lange helps Barbie find a new purpose. She creates wearable works of art from the parts of salvage dolls. I run into Barbie dolls at thrift shops all the time and can now look at this material and cultural figure in a different perspective. I wonder what I could make and what students could create with doll figures.

The unpredictable flight pattern of plastic has been captured and presented by Swiss artist Zimoun. The museum's windows allow the audience to watch the storm of packing peanuts and Styrofoam roll without a rhythmic pattern.

Cellophane City? Plastic Arts Change Urban Landscape

Cellophane City? Plastic Arts Change Urban Landscape | Artistic Development, Globalization, and Environmental Art | Scoop.it
Cellophane, the plastic stuff that keeps your sandwiches fresh, isn't a conventional art tool. But these two projects use it to temporarily spruce up cities.

Via Derek DeWitt
Lindsey Lindgren's insight:

Cedric Bernadotte uses cellophane as a material to create public works of art that are temporary in urban environments. The material allows for him to install and remove quickly. The works challenge the idea of public and private space. He invades, yet creates intimacy in urban settings. CelloGraff came from Bernadotte's concept and allows for graffiti artists to install public temporary pieces of works.

Patrick Dougherty - Daily Mail article | Artistic Development, Globalization, and Environmental Art | Scoop.it

I apologise in advance for making you visit the hate-mongering piece of trash that is The Daily Fail, but in this case you really should read the article which features some amazing pictures of Patrick's work, and talks about the process behind their creation. I think this is one of my favourites, although between the photos in this article and his website, it's hard to choose.


Via Fiona Silk
Lindsey Lindgren's insight:

Patrick Dougherty creates sculptures that compliment the environmental surroundings. He says that his drawing plans are lines of piled saplings, each piece unique for it's setting. He combines his carpentry skills with his love for nature to weave tree saplings into massive installations. He spends 3-4 weeks per an installation. From personal experience and viewing, his work establishes positive conversation. It gets the people to discuss what is happening within the community. Locally he installed "Out in Front" at the Sarasota Museum of Art in 2013, not pictured.

Lindsey Lindgren's insight:

Math can be applied with human created arts even though nature has been doing this for a countless amount of time. To me art does not have to be purely man made, it can be created in nature too. The Fibonacci Sequence is a proven system that is quite amazing to see evolve. The golden ratio is another similar mathematical innovation used in art, man made and natural.

Visual Storytelling Through Intricate Paper Designs

Visual Storytelling Through Intricate Paper Designs | Artistic Development, Globalization, and Environmental Art | Scoop.it

Australian artist Emma Van Leest turns a simple sheet of paper into a magical visual story. She hand-cuts intricate patterns into large sheets, and then mounts them with glue onto foamcore. Several layers set against a vibrant, colorful backdrop form Van Leest's three-dimensional scenes, which reference children's stories, folk art, Medieval saints, and Hindu literature.

 

With just a simple blade, Van Leest carves out delicate, elaborate details that can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 months to create. Her inspiration comes from many of her travels overseas, as well as the time she spends reading in the library and exploring high quality images online.

 

Van Leest loves working with paper because "It’s such an ephemeral, everyday material that we all use. We scribble on it, scrunch it up, throw it out. It’s lightweight and accessible which means that you don’t think of creating something so delicate and painstaking as a papercut with it. It’s exciting to create something of beauty and interest out of it."


Via Gregg Morris
Lindsey Lindgren's insight:

When paper becomes magical and tells a story. Emma Van Leest makes paper a cooler medium then before. She uses the works to create 3D scenes that tell stories. She alters the use and meaning of paper.
