Air vents. Those little eye sores we try to ignore. But, what if, instead of trying to cover them up, you drew attention to them?

“Someone is watching you… ”

Artists Dan Witz and Blik collaborated on these “grate graphics”. I really enjoyed Witz’s explanation:  “I’m trying to exploit our collective tendency towards sleepwalking by inserting outrageous things right out there in plain view that are also practically invisible. My goal is to make obvious in your face art that 99% of the people who walk by won’t notice. Eventually when they stumble upon one or find out about it, I’m hoping they’ll start wondering what else they’ve been missing.” (Source)

The only improvement I can think of is making the grate ghoul look more like Klaus Kinski.

(P.S. Pretty sure I originally saw this on Incredible Things. And even if I didn’t, the entire website is pure awesome so go go go check it out.)
