the urban forest project
i just got an email about this and had to share quickly before the new podcast launches. the urban forest project, "brings 185 banners created by the world’s most celebrated designers, artists, photographers and illustrators to new york’s times square. each banner uses the form of the tree, or a metaphor for the tree, to make a powerful visual statement. together they create a forest of thought-provoking images at one of the world’s busiest, most energetic, and emphatically urban intersections." the banners will be on display through october 31 so i'm going to run over and see them when my toe is better. but until then you can click here to browse the banners and buy a tshirt with one of them on it. even cooler is the fact that each banner will be made into a totebag and auctioned off when the show is over. what a great way to recycle.
