Joey Skaggs bloggt

Joey Skaggs, der¬†Culure Jamming-Altmeister, Hoax-√úbervater und Prankster-K√∂nig hat zum ersten April (wann auch sonst!) sein eigenen “The Art of the Prank“-Blog gestartet. “Here you will find insights, information, news and discussions about pranks, hoaxes, culture jamming & reality hacking around the world – past, present and future – mainstream and counter culture.” Skaggs infizierte Journalisten mit der Meldung eines “Bordells f√ľr Hunde”,¬†initierte eine Lotterie, deren erster Preis die Umbenennung der Brooklyn Bridge war, gr√ľndete ein Bestattungsunternehmen¬†f√ľr K√ľnstler und kreative Grabmale und ist f√ľr Dutzende weiterer Fakes und Hoaxes verantwortlich. In einem Interview mit BoingBoing¬†erz√§hlt er √ľber sein Blogprojekt (u.a. werden auch Rev. Al, Ron English, Nancy Weber, and V. Vale Beitr√§ge liefern) und √ľber die Kunst der Pranks: “Art comes in many colors and hues, shapes, sizes and forms. It can be decorative, functional, socially iconoclastic, or even politically revolutionary. To me the prank is fine art. Perpetrating pranks has enabled me to be expressive in many mediums. I incorporate sculpture, painting, graphic design, advertising, public relations, writing, directing, and acting. The execution of a prank, just like creating a painting or a sculpture, involves intent, content, technique and the magic that occurs when it takes on a life of its own.”
