This blog has been created to keep everyone up to date with the recent labour dispute with Strange City, the reputable and well-known piercing and tattoo studio in Edmonton, AB. Clients, friends, and associates have been curious about the details so we wanted to let everyone know the current…
Not gonna lie…
I don’t really get what Foundmonton is trying to get at with the whole “Unconventional street art photography” segment?
Are you a street art blog or an artistic photography blog? It’s like whoever runs that tumblr feel that they themselves aren’t getting enough recognition or something…
Yet it has absolutely nothing to do with street art and representing local artists!
Come on now Foundmonton. Please just get back to what everyone wants to see. Art in the streets!

Marina Abramović and Ulay, Death Self, 1977
To create this Death self, the two performers devised a piece in which they connected their mouths and took in each other’s exhaled breaths until they had used up all of the available oxygen. Seventeen minutes after the beginning of the performance they both fell to the floor unconscious, their lungs having filled with carbon dioxide. This personal piece explored the idea of an individual’s ability to absorb the life of another person, exchanging and destroying it.
Ulay and Abramović collaborated together for over a decade, upholding an intense and intimate relationship. In 1988, the two began a spiritual journey to end their relationship; each started at opposite ends of the Great Wall of China, walked 2500 km over a span of 90 days, met in the center, and said good-bye.
