Last night CutUp installed their latest batch of work throughout London. For those of you not (yet) familiar with CutUp, they specialize in physically remixing the urban visual, taking down billboards, cutting them up into pixels, and re-installing them to create new images out of the original source material. While my personal favorite medium of their work is large-scale billboards as above, I also enjoy their bus stop hits, where they hack the light box adverts with their own remix. Here, a Spiderman poster takes an unexpected turn:
Most satisfyingly though, last night I got to spend some time with the guys and talk more in-depth about their methods and process. What can I say – I heart CutUp. For more photos, see the flickr set here.
