The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

To bring awareness to the worn out and abandoned buildings in the city of Saint-Étienne, French street artists Ella and Pitr have created a series of wonderful anamorphic murals.

Inspired by the contemporary realities of his fast-changing country, Chinese artist Xu Bing spent two years creating his newest work titled “Phoenix”. The installation currently on exhibit at MassMoCA features two massive birds fabricated entirely from materials harvested from construction sites in urban China, including demolition debris, steel beams, tools, and remnants of the daily lives of migrant laborers (via).

"At once fierce and strangely beautiful, the mythic Phoenixes bear witness to the complex interconnection between labor, history, commercial development, and the rapid accumulation of wealth in today’s China." - Xu Bing.
