Up Late Again

Hello, it's been awhile.

Well... the bench is gone, fun over?  Nope!  We are excited to let loose with this next idea. We are temporarily installing framed art in various public spaces.

Have you ever looked through the art at thrift stores?  It is an odd assortment that in large part consists of amateur landscapes, flowers, twenty year old photos of places you've never been, someone's favourite animal, tacky souvenirs from resorts in Mexico, more flowers, and a creepy child or two.  All of it, good or bad, is awesome, and we decided that maybe some of it deserves a second chance at being seen.  The best part is, there is so much of this amazing cultural flotsam and jetsam.

Yes, this isn't exactly bench related. We are aware that the name Interbenchion kind of ties us to only working with benches, but then realized, heck, who exactly is making the rules here?

Same rules apply as to the bench, we won't damage anything, and it is temporary. We will be back in a couple of days to take it down.  Unless it falls down, which may happen.

So anyways, here is the first attempt/tape-test.

Camera phones ain't great at night.

Small art, big wall.

Anyhoo, keep your eyes out as you walk around. We will post the best ones here.
