Brad Downey in Germany: Beneath the paving stones....

The Beginning and the End, Hamburg, 2010 [via]

Louisville-born, Berlin-based artist Brad Downey has apparently been interpreting the '68 Situationists graffito "Beneath the paving stones, the beach" ("Sous les pav├ęs, la plage!") by unearthing German street stones to create sand castles, impromptu 3D installations, and domino-style performance interventions.

Nice one.I have heard couple of sounds about the Germany stones which are also mine favorites. Really catchy domino-style.
