TILT’s “Panic Room” Video

TILT – PANIC ROOM from BIG ADDICT on Vimeo.

TILT’s Panic Room, completed in the hotel Au Vieux and consisting of a hotel room with half-color bubbled graffiti and tags and half pristine white room, just released the video of the making of and process behind the piece. As TILT says, “The hotel Au vieux panier asked me to design a room, I first told them that I wasn’t interested doing just decoration in the room but I wanted to create something that will look more like an installation. I thought about it also as a huge canvas where I needed to think about the composition and play with the empty white part of the room to accentuate more the idea of Chaos on the other part. Then I asked my friend Tober who gat a great
old school style for tags, Grizz who is also the man behind the camera and Don Cho who is a Hip Hop singer from Marseille but who used to be a tagger from my home town Toulouse. It took one week to do the whole thing cause the idea was to exaggerate what you can usually see in some abandoned places. Too much tags, too much drips, too much sentences, too much throw ups … What I also wanted to show is that people can appreciate any type of graffiti, even the more basic, it’s just a matter of point of view … “

French graffiti artist TILT created the “Panic Room” at the Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France, where, as you can see, he painted half the room in technicolor graffiti, and left the other half completely white and clean. The hotel is complete with only five rooms that are annually redone by artists. TILT’s will make you not sleep.

Perhaps the greatest thing ever found in Encino, California, a stolen Rembrandt sketch which was hawked from a hotel lobby days earlier was found in a church in the Southern California town. The piece, about 250 years old, was stolen from the “Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey. A curator was momentarily distracted by someone who seemed interested in buying another piece.”

Meanwhile, Brendan Fraser’s career is nowhere to be found. Hey-o!

This guy is going to fund the world’s tallest building

saudi prince 007 This guy is going to fund the worlds tallest building worlds tallest buidling saudi prince prince alwaleed bin talal billionaire

Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is funding the world’s tallest skyscraper. More importantly, you know what is fun about being a Saudi prince/billionaire? You get absolute protection from the United States and don’t have to return the favor (see funding for 9/11 attacks). According to the Guardian, “The £736m deal for the hotel, office and residential complex reaching two-thirds of a mile into the sky makes Saudi Arabia the current frontrunner in the race between the oil-rich nations for glitzy architectural trophies. The projects are seen as status symbols to show off both economic success and cultural sophistication.” My phallus is big! No, mine is way bigger!
