A artist show caught my eye whilst looking for art intervention ideas was Will St Leger. St Leger's stencils are humorous and sometimes surreal fusion of icons, events and images from popular culture. Previously a graphic designer and former Greenpeace activist St Leger refers to himself as an ‚Äòartivist‚Äô.One of Legers interventions which originally caught my eye is the ‚ÄúLandmine Trail‚Äù. Where on Sunday 1st April, 2007. He placed 100 fake 'landmines' around parks in Dublin, Ireland. These fake landmines were made of stenciled enemal plates. Though they looked very real on the underside there was a notice to say they were indeed fake and information highlighting the cause and problems of unexploded landmines. "The reason for doing this was to get people asking themselves, 'what if the world I walked in was littered with landmines?'" Leger.I like this idea a lot as it will catch peoples attention to a cause and no dought get some publicity which would further the cause.
I thought about taking this ideas and developing it a little, but after brief consideration having fake landmines around the hoe would not be very respectful around the war memorials that are there, plus in this day and terrorism age it could be quite likely I‚Äôm shot by armed police!
