The Technicolor Town Of Burano, Italy

Burano Italy

Popular among artists for obvious reasons, this northern Italian island gets its multicolored streets thanks to a system stemming from the golden age of the area’s development. In other words, if you want to paint your home here, you must send a request to the government who will respond by making notice of the permitted colors on that specific lot.

The Red Ball Project Hits Paris

The time to talk about the elephant in the room has ceased, at least to artist Kurt Perschke. It’s time to talk–or as Perschke hopes–wonder about the large red ball directly in your path.

Says Perschke in his statement, “On the surface, the experience seems to be about the ball itself as an object, but the true power of the project is what it can create for those who experience it. It opens a doorway to imagine what if? As Red Ball travels around the world people approach me on the street with excited suggestions about where to put it in their city. In that moment the person is not a spectator but a participant in the act of imagination. I have witnessed it across continents, diverse age spans, cultures, and languages, always issuing an invitation. That invitation to engage, to collectively imagine, is the true essence of the Red Ball Project.”
