In 2005, Berlin artist Aisha Ronniger was looking for imaginative ways to get around local anti-graffiti laws that were increasingly clamping down on wheatpasting. The result was Papergirl, an annual art project that literally delivers art to the proverbial man/woman in the street- in the new and novel form of the old-school American paperboy. Every year, artwork contributions to the project (there are no guidelines or restrictions to contributions- as long as they're flexible enough to be rolled up) are first displayed in a gallery setting, then bundled up into rolls of 10-15 items, to be tossed into the hands of an unsuspecting passerby in a serendipitous, fun and completely free encounter with art in the middle of everyday urban life.

Can You See Me Now? is a game that happens simultaneously online and on the streets. Players from anywhere in the world can play online in a virtual city against members of Blast Theory. Tracked by satellites, Blast Theory's runners appear online next to your player on a map of the city. On the streets, handheld computers showing the positions of online players guide the runners in tracking you down.
