Wooster collective showcases KNOW HOPE, Tel-Aviv based artists who create these wonderful pieces out of paper and then lites them up with candles… Here’s a note from the artists –

What i like about the lanterns is that it deals with the frail temporary aspect of putting up art in street.if i take the best case scenario (that nobody takes the piece after a short while and there are no extreme winds or rain) then the longest life span of these pieces will be that of the candles, which is probably just a few hours. therefore, when someone runs into it on the street they know that it was placed there not so long ago and they, by coincidence, got there in the small time frame that the piece was “active”, hopefully giving them the feeling that it was placed there especially for them, and maybe guiding them,following them home and subtly lighting up their way.

    So these guys are wandering around Tel-Aviv deploying incendiary devices in public parks with no adverse reaction whereas a couple of punk kids in Boston get torn a new fundament for leaving a flashing toy on a bridge?
