You Might Call It A Crisis But It's Silence To Me

Filippo Minelli is not a takeover artist but the video above entitled "You might call it crisis but it's silence to me" is a delightful piece uses the method for fantastic results. I could watch this for hours or have as a dedicated video installation in my home. Presumably the artist himself dances in front of billboards which have been painted or pasted grey and light blue, obscuring thier content. Given the title, his subversive exuberance leaves me smiling and uplifted in a way I am unused to art making me feel. Enjoy!
