International Yarn Bombing Day

A shout-out to all our yarn bombing friends out there.  We celebrated the day with some local Berlin knitters, decorating the street architecture in Kreuzberg, close to Kottbusser Tor.

GRL Germany member C3MY even invented the ‘Yarn Bomb Throwie’ for the occasion … instructable to follow.  More Pics

 

 

 

Trike Construcion…

Our bike has arrived, and we’ve put it together…. work starts next week on modding.

Mobile Broadcast Unit aka the “Light Rider”

Following in the grand tradition of our sister cells in New York, Vienna, and Montreal, we have recently secured some funding to produce a Mobile Broadcast Unit – a Copenhagen-style, front-loaded cargo bike, outfitted with a deep cycle battery, power inverter, beamer, laptop, camera, and sound system with fm transmission.

 

This will allow us to do guerilla projection bombing anywhere in Berlin.

Anyone with interest and/or experience in bike modding and mobile power is welcome to contact us and become involved.

Once we have finished construction, we will be offering the MBU as an equipment grant to other artistic, social, and political groups for events (MayDay riots, anyone ??)

 

Thanks to the Berlin Chapter of the Awesome Foundation and KulturAmt Nuekölln for the support. We’ll make you proud!
