Faile X Vice: 104 North 7th Project

April 25th, 2012 Posted by: Paper Monster

The Faile guys just completed a great project right around the corner from Paper Monster here in Brooklyn and Vice put out a nifty little video of the project here.

104 N. 7TH

The piece consists of thousands of handmade tiles designed by the artists, each individually pressed and painted, and then fired in a wood-burning kiln and shipped to the installation site. The tiles were then applied to the surface of the building by the artists and a team of helpers over several days.

Well known for their explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage, as well as their use of unique materials, FAILE have created a beautiful tapestry of color, giving life and personality to a very plain structure.

Swing by the building and see for yourself @ 104 North 7th St. Brooklyn, NY.
