Now, the art show may be over, but the art project itself is just two thirds through!
According to their Kickstarter page for the project, the building will get refurbished over the course of one year and turned into an office building, after which, some of the artists will get invited back into the building to paint permanent murals. Wrapping up the project will be a photo-book documenting the project. I hope they release the book in two parts; One part documenting the September 8th show, and another documenting the entire project.
Be sure to check out the Endless Canvas blog for more photos and posts about the show.
Here are just a few of the photos I took:

The New Aesthetic, coined by James Bridle, states that "One of the core themes of the New Aesthetic has been our collaboration with technology, whether that’s bots, digital cameras or satellites (and whether that collaboration is conscious or unconscious)". Is there a distinct line between technology as a tool vs. technology as a collaborator? Is the NA limited only to computer enabled tech? What makes the NA different than all those before us? Or is NA just a fad? The New Aesthetic Tumbler is proof that something unique is there, is happening right now, and offers insightful views into our culture.
I've already found NA useful within my own art work. I'm currently working on a project (photo-prints of buildings, public streets, overlaid with graffiti) exploring the tension between advertising and street-art.
What would the real-world look like if current online advertising technology was applied visually to the street? What would the ADmented reality look like beyond fugly “Star-trek glasses”?

Wondering why your favorite dive-bar no longer serves daily cheapo
PBR? Can't find tecate in a can anymore? Mission bar owners are
reporting that they no longer serve hella cheap PBR or tecate since
that directly correlates with taggers tagging their bar.
