Chicago street artist Bored has transformed the Logan Square district into a Monopoly board - complete with dice, chance and community chest cards, and street tiles with ‘houses’ already ‘built’. Bored told Christopher Jobson at Colossal art & design blog, that
“the goal of this entire project has been to present something different than a stencil painted on the ground or a poster pasted to a wall. Something 3-dimensional that can be picked up, beaten down, kicked, yanked, grabbed, and broken. And if someone ever put forth the effort to remove it, like a weed it will always grow back. And if left alone it will evolve into something different.”
Bored is choosing to remain anonymous, and it is unknown whether they are an individual or a collective. Either way, this is true urban art: interactive and ever changing, it is what any democratic city would encourage.
