Design | Urban Art Transformation

Playing with the cities architecture always makes for eye catching art. The latest showcase of this is the work by art collective Mentalgassi, who've created several artworks that play with everyday city objects.

While still got time for Banksy and his 'isn't capitalism bad?' portraits on random city walls, we've always had a soft spot for art that plays with perceptions and expectations on a larger (and slightly more interesting) scale. And Mentalgassi, an art collective based in Berlin, do just that.

Creating game controllers using street lights, people drinking water via a canal drain and masked people on recycling bins, it's the sort of art that grabs your attention by it's sheer weirdness. And that's no bad thing.
