German artist Jan Vormann has gone around mending wall cracks around Brooklyn and Manhattan with Legos. From Europe’s olde architecture/WWII-damaged Berlin, Vormann moved on with project Dispatchwork to Lego-stuff the crevices in neglected structures around Bryant and Central Park and various NYC building facade dilapidations.
Only one cheery Lego de-hole remains, on the Upper East Side of Central Park. The rest have been swept up, likely by city government drones. Vormann’s said that the colorful public art actively joins Bloomberg’s “everyday struggle to make this city even more amazing,” hint hint, please let the art live… But the gov reps have declined to comment. |NYPost|
