Advertising Carousel by Florian Rivière in Berlin

Self-proclaimed urban hacktivist Florian Rivière is in Berlin right now. Inspired by the hackers culture, the Frenchman reinvests and diverts public space to allow citizens to reclaim their environment. His interventions, located between urban design, DIY and upcycling (upgrading waste), have the particularity to be spontaneous and raw, exclusively made with objects found in the street, and always with humor…

Games, furnishings, traps, maps, instructions… so many urban tactics to show the functionality of sites, and direct action of the user on urban space. (Florian Rivière)

His recent street interventions in Berlin bear such interesting names like Fast Bench, Beer Table or – what I like most – Advertising Carousel. The last one describes an awesome installation, consisting of three shopping carts strapped to a rotating advertising pillar! It’s a great idea and a guerilla art masterpiece – seems the kids like it…
