Last week in Russia, WikiLeaks sympathizers and members of Ekaterinburg’s art-movement Old Bukashin dedicated a monument to Julian Assange. It was deliberately temporary and now lives on the internet. The janky tribute was constructed out of “A-S-S-A-N-G-E” print outs, a sketch, a cardboard pirate hat, some helium balloons to float it up and an old computer monitor to anchor it down. It was cut loose to fly away after two hours.

The rip on the tether was quite unfortunate, actually, as only the “A-S-S” part of the sign took flight. Oopsies. Big thanks to Meteke for locating the photos for us.
