Street Artist Peter Gibson Paints Electrical Plugs on the Road

Tech on the Street: Electrical Plugs as Graffiti

Can graffiti/street art be considered cute? I wouldn't dream of marginalizing the work of street artist Peter Gibson, but when I saw his modification of double yellow road stripes — turning them into electrical plugs, I raised my eyebrows and thought of the twee word. I mean it as a compliment: I'd smile every time I saw this, if it were in my neighborhood.

Gibson, who first started making street art as a statement about our disconnected "car culture" (it's relieving to hear the disconnection pointed at cars, rather than tech, by the way), said, “My original intention was to simply introduce an element of surprise in an otherwise uniform and predictable environment.” And how.

Why do you insist on ruining the streets? Quit destroying public property. I don't come to your house and force my "art" on your property. Don't do it on mine. Let's see...I've got a great idea for a piece of art. I go to your house and cover it with dog shit. We'll call it "shit on shit." That's clever. Do you like that? Quit fucking up public property. You're not cute, clever or even that original.
