The medium is the message

Now this is interesting.

Yesterday the Lowbrow received the below image as an e-mail attachment from an anonymous artist. Remember my post yesterday about the City’s strange snipe fixation? Consider that earlier this week the Mayor’s office and local busybodies Keep Charleston Beautiful announced a new crackdown on graffiti. “Graffiti is not a question of creativity but a definite form of vandalism,” Hizonner remarked.

Somebody out there clearly begs to differ. It's not clear whether this is meant to be a poster (i.e. a “snipe”) or a spray-painted stencil. But either way, the message is the same. It might not be as subtle a tactic as street phenomenology. But as a creative statement, it’s pretty darn phenomenal. Somebody get Banksy on the phone, quick.
