Body Tagging

Oh, the gipsters and their wonderfulness. 

Thanks to It's Tea for the heads up to this fun little project from my new favorite flash activist/artist -- Ethan Philbrick. Someone asked, "What is his role in the community?" I am deeming him Cincinnati's flasher.

Wait, no. That's not right.

Anyways, "body tagging" is described, by Mr. Lohr of It's Tea, as: "body tagging juxtaposes the figural shapes of the human body against the built urban environment (as graffiti does the same with paint)." Involved are, of course, Mr. Lohr and Ethan... but also "sidd finch" (Jeff Elrod) of centsinnati, who seems to be returning quietly to the blogging world.

I think I have a not-so-secret blog crush on those three boys. 

This is my new favorite one, though, from the Facebook pictures (so may not come up if your work blocks Facebook):

I like this movement and the way the two are contorted but seem to still fit together.
