Beta launch - publicart.sg
Finally decided to upgrade the nusantara.com/pasta database of Singapore public art over to its next generation version, at www.publicart.sg. The new site, still a-building, is much more interactive, allowing for comments, voting on works, and group authoring. Also lots of fun integration with Facebook, Google Maps, Flickr and the like. All enabled by the super open-source community/content management system Drupal.

Dan Witz's homepage
I blogged one of Dan's Face projects some months ago. Here's his homepage, with links to lots of fun stuff, including more faces. His "in progress" section includes a series stickers and painted shadows on existing streetscape surfaces. I give you here a little taste of his urban water lilies...
The Public Space (and its Discontents) group on Flickr
A wonderful idea for a Flickr pool, and an interesting crowd of urban explorers, architects, public space activists, photographers. density lovers and so on. The pool was started by Knapster.«This group is interested in how people use, abuse and subvert 'public' spaces. Now that we lead sedentary indoor lives, public spaces are often neglected or strictly controlled and regulated. We are interested in how public spaces can be used for 'unexpected' purposes other than their design or how that are 'supposed' to;

spell out "street art" - using flickr images
Kastner has a great use of the Flickr API here - using entries in the various "Single Letter" groups to spell out words. What better way to spell the words "street art" than using images grabbed from the street. Yes, I am interested in this because Flickr is a kind of public space - relating to the public space from which these images were "grabbed".

World Interactive Map of Street Art
As one might expect, a mash-up of Google Maps and Flickr... very cool. Two of Killer Gerbil's Singapore stickers already up on the database. I'll try and put a few things up myself. Way to go Mike Oliver! (Now what we need is a time dimension... a slider on the other side...) ((Then that would make Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative obselete?)) Sorry for thinking aloud...

art & design of metro stations - from Athens to Zurich
Great site (long time to load!) called Metro Arts & Architecture with photos, descriptions and links to subway/metro lines around the world. Plenty of talk about socialist "palaces of the people", including some intriguing pix of the subway in Tashkent. Inspired, I've uploaded some of my pictures of the Moscow subway to a new flickr set.

a new public art database - in St Louis, USA
Gee, perhaps one day we can have a listing of public art databases around the world. Singapore, St Louis, Taiwan, more are coming up every day. This database is very well put together, even if the size of the pictures is a bit ungenerous. It is a creation of the Regional Arts Council of city and county of St Louis.

Lovely Flickr set on The Iron Men
Lovely set of photos on Flickr (by Lizinha) of artworks (the Iron Men, by Anthony "Angel of the North" Gormley. This installation is on the Sefton Coast (sorry Lizinha, no idea where that is really...). Gormley's work is attracting a lot of ihttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifnterest lately. In fact, he's coming to Singapore's Institute of Contemporary Arts later in the year.
