The beautiful walls : photographic elevations of street art in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Paris by Patrick Arthur Polk( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Graffiti is a forceful way of inscribing presence or 'being' in the world as well as a means of creating affective links to the potency of natural wonders, religious shrines, and ancient ruins as well as the contemporary cityscape. The photographic elevations presented in this volume represent a graffiti-punctuated pilgrim's progress built around the aesthetics of defacement. Graffiti- and mural-covered walls, buildings, automobiles, and railcars are the artful wonders, the vibrant shrines, and the dynamic ruins that structured Larry Yust's pilgrimage to some of the most famed metropolitan centers of the world. He has brought back panoramic souvenirs; vistas that let us be there in a way that is perhaps better than being there. This book celebrates the artistry and audacity of the taggers and uncommissioned muralists who decorate and deface contemporary cities."--Publisher's description

Almost a vaudeville act, this play from the Theater of the Absurd expresses Ionesco's sense of the ambiguity and incoherence of much of modern life. The play opens in an empty room at the top of a six-story walk-up. Soon the new tenant arrives--and begins filling up the room with furniture. Piece by piece, stack upon stack, chairs and bureaus fill the room. Finally the man is crowded into a tiny square--isolated, lost, barricaded by four walls of his own furniture. In this peculiar way, he has cut himself off from the world; he has created for himself a kind of death
