The words “urban art” don’t often conjure up images of spectacular, ground-breaking installations in my mind, rather dodgy tags on piss-stained walls behind the local supermarket. In this case though, urban artist SpY has made something worth writing home about. MOON is an enormous, lit crescent moon that hangs suspended over a plaza in Lausanne by an enormous crane. In the day it looks ghostly and sad, then when night comes and the lights get switched on (I’m always so envious of the people who get to turn really big lights on) it becomes something pretty magical indeed. Check out more of his genuinely enjoyable “urban art” over here and over on his site.
