Juxtapoz pimps The Upset Dark matter participants

Art-goers at the Co-Prosperity Sphere space buzzed around the work of over 30 artists at the Dark Matter opening April 18th—part of Version>08 Fest in Chicago—where one of the centerpieces was a graffiti wall installation by The Upset, a group of graffiti artists and photographers from Chicago and New York.

Last nite of Version

On Saturday April 26 we were at NEXT. NEXT Art fair rocked. we loved seeing all of our buddies' work and discovering some refreshing and titilating stuff. here are some pics.

the Dutch guys were basically the Version staff this year. they even manned our PRoximity booths. This guy jeroen prolly drank a case a Grolsch beer every day and you would never know...

Goffo kicked ass.

the elevators were always packed...

After NEXt we had our closing paty for version>08 at the Co-Prosperity Sphere. We had about 1500 people come through the show over the course of one week. The final nite was crazy.

This guy Neville basically ruled the show. he made the bikes and the kissing robots in the window.

It was packed again/.

Field of Dreams and Anarchist Wedding

Field of Dreams:
Last day of Version.
We went to the Plaines Project Field of Dreams after going to NEXt art fair to pick up the Proximity Magazine and the ceremony for the Malooly wedding. WE booked over to the FOD but no one was there! Well, we were late. We scanned the huge lot and saw some great sculptures and projects.

While there Rachael installed of one of her space tree tops.

Sweet planter


Awesome job mathew!

Even better. The whole lot was cleaned up and trash was brought to this zone.
These guys are gonna do this weekly!

We got back just in time for grub. Here's the lucky Groom!
Good Luck you guys!
