The Huffington Post about Swoon simulating „What It’s Like To Have A Shared-Death Experience“

Swoon’s project, “Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea,” features seven boats including this steam-powered paddleboat.

In between bites of jelly doughnuts, the crew, dressed in hipster hillbilly chic, hustled to clean up pieces of scrap metal and ready the boats. In the middle stood the artist known as Swoon in a bright yellow rain poncho and jeans.

HENSE upcoming project in Atlanta 2017

Midtown tower in Atlanta will incorporate giant HENSE mural with ‘3-D elements’.

An apartment sky-rise that’s climbing at a prominent Midtown corner will feature an immense mural that developers hope will serve as a gateway to Atlanta’s arts district, officials announced today.

Related Development has christened the 39-story tower at 14th and West Peachtree streets „Apogee Midtown.“ Along with a neighboring, multi-story Whole Foods Market flagship, the project will incorporate a mural by artist HENSE — aka, the homegrown Alex Brewer — that will measure almost 100-feet high and 63-feet wide.
