STALL-TIGHT-private

For his 13th day in New York, British street artist, Banksy, pulled a prank on unsuspecting passersby in Central Park by setting up an art stall with dozens of 100% original signed canvases for $60 a piece with the sign “Spray Art”. In the past, his works have sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Over a period of 7 hours, only three people purchased a total of 8 canvases. According to Banksy’s website, he indicates that “this was a one off. The stall will not be there again today”. Banksy, who hasn’t revealed his real name, has been in New York over the past week or so creating art on the streets of NYC. Check out some video from the day below.

Money-soap

It’s money laundering of the best sort. These pleasantly scented soap bars reward clean hands big and small with a surprise inside. You’ll find cash money: either a $1, $5, $10, $20 or even a $50. $13

This is just a guess… but chances are, you are probably going to get a $1 bill. Lol.

via Quartz. Instead of building a new headquarters from the ground up, Japanese recruiting company Pasona renovated a 50-year-old office building with a double-skin, green facade and rooftop garden and, most notably, urban farming facilities throughout the building. The building has a rice field in the lobby, a hydroponic tomato farming space surrounded by offices, pumpkin vines growing over one of the reception areas, and lemon and passion fruit trees forming partitions that divide the meeting rooms… pretty cool! Check out some more photos and an informational video below.
