Wednesday Walk

The sun finally came out for a brief period before setting, so I decided to go out for a quick graffiti photoshoot before setting off into wednesday evening. Todays focus : Politlical graffiti, stencils, romantic traces on the streets of Berlin and some Wallpapers!


Lets start off with the latter:






And now… romance (pleace prononce with a frainch accént):






Ok, more like romanticism…


On with: Politics, politics, politics! (To quote Mel Brooks):


Translation: Privatisation's expensive.

Very political: Eat more fruit (Somewhat misleading in English).




Transl.: Thanks for your labour plan Mr Bush.

Transl.: Strikes Help!

Juvenile and direct!


Stencils!


I knew Faile and Banksy had done a tour of berlin at some point…








And a couple of miscellaneous ones that were too much fun not to share:



Transl.: All Computers! (Meaning the residents, I suppose?)

All work on display here is by the people who did it… I don't expect anyone to step forth and claim the fame!

Two minutes: Addiction is Life is Yellow.

Addiction is a much-maligned, muddy word. Until (ca.) the 18th century, it connoted tendency and drive, rather than (self-) affliction. Opium changed that- reportedly.

Also: Addiction is apparently yellow. 

A grain of rice can save the world…

…with a bit of help from all its other grains of rice friends.
Not being able to do decent research into nutrition forced me to get a bit creative with this one. And do actual maths. Thanks to Ugur & Silke for their help in this.
Extra Info: this is what a single grain of rice looks like close up:

I wonder if a series of single grain infographics would be would be interesting?

Two minutes: Enemy of the tribe

There was, once upon a time, a small tribe that lived in a deep jungle. They were migrant farmers, traveling from cultivation spot to cultivation spot, depending on the season and their fancy. In their absence, these spots were often used by other tribes, with the understanding that they would set aside small amount of their harvest. This symbiosis benefited all involved, keeping the soil fresh and turned, providing sustenance for the inhabitants of the jungle 
Their traditions compelled them to hospitality and friendliness toward visitors- their words for strangers and visitors translated into "friends-who-are-not-yet-friends" and "visitors-and-we-are-their-friend". If they didn't like someone, they would become "Friend-that-is-not-talked-to", usually adding "until we talk again", implying that ire was temporary and a return to friendship imminent. 
One day, they were visited by a random anthropologist. Fascinated by the vocabulary their w…
