Remember when Banksy was nightcreepin’ around New York City and everyone was like “oooh anything can be art after all?” That was a special time in our lives and let’s never forget it. So everyone in the art world is constantly coming up with something new and fresh that will capture our attention as much as Banksy-style guerrilla art — or at least a Snapchat story about a high schooler wearing white vans. In that spirit, comedian Matt Barats of Brooklyn’s Annoyance Theater created a video about a “sound graffiti” artist who wanders the concrete-plant industrial wilds of Bushwick looking for “the ugliest sounds possible.” The video, made for IFC’s Video Frogs series, also features Brokelyn’s favorite human Jo Firestone, who desperately needs a muffin. Somebody go to Swallow Cafe and get her a muffin!
