Also hidden in plain sight? Zen Garden by Nate Swain under the Zakim Bridge



rested. TED: NATE SWING takes great pleasure in committing random acts of Guerrilla’s art. >> I like to ask for forgiveness rather than permission. >> Projects are run from mega to mini. And when the 10-year-old has come up with the idea of ​​a 3D crosshair in Medford – >> hopefully it will be an extra reminder as if you had to stop. Chyna: It was – TED: Flattered with the natural choice to bring the concept back to life. He had a couple of friends set up shop under the Zakim Bridge to make more hidden artworks in a regular setting. >> The people who drive across the Zikim bridge have no idea about this place which is nice. It is huge and bulky. TED: A ZEN GARDEN is planted in front of his 150-foot garden. No artwork is authorized by the city or state. >> It kept growing and growing and is now 150 feet tall and 15 feet long. TED: But hiding in plain sight doesn’t describe his art, it defines a lifestyle. >> In terms of living space, invisibility in plain sight is a great concept. TED: To the end, he bought a faceless-looking minivan, pulled over on commercial plates and lived rent-free in Boston. >> I don’t pay rent. I pay insurance and pay taxes. TED: He understandably asked us not to show the whole bus, but he’s happy to take us on a tour inside, as the renovation has begun. There is a Murphy bed. >> It’s a temperature scale – tidy. TED: Wash-basin and deep-dryer. A rent-free life, hiding in plain sight. >> This is possible. Why didn’t I imagine this soon? TED: Future viewers of a certain age may remember that this family voice was welcome. Is it time to request a return? Don’t get me wrong – these things are an absolute miracle. The phone in your pocket is a million times more powerful than the computers used to send computers to the moon. But was something sacrificed? All those numbers and speed dials lie in a very lost telephone civilization where phone numbers contain names and characters that, once learned, are never lost. >> CIPHER 65764. TED: Until the late 1960s, all telephone exchanges were with names, and many were tailored to their location. NZ HAD GRANITE ONE, EAST BOSTON, LOGAN SEVEN. A farm in Literary Concord nurtures its old number nine. Most of these exchanges are still operating. Its character and color are hidden in plain sight, just take advantage of the BLAND series surface of the current numbers. >> It’s poetic. I will never forget her. Ted: When it comes to phones, there’s only one man to call. Howard Davis, known for his colorful transportation. >> Car phone is still running. TED: DAVIS hampers loss of exchange names. >> You have given your city and region personality. TED: The old phone numbers had such a cadence that it turned them into music was surprising. The music is so memorable that sweat rug cleaning companies and Adams are still using their old system 75 years after they debuted. >> It’s on our website, it’s on our trucks, it’s well known. It has affected people’s brains since the 1940s. TED: AARON SOTLOFF Developed Superior Surface Cleaning – partnered with ADAM SMITH SWEAT but modern businessmen knew better than messaging that song with old Southern EXCHEN. >> Andrew eight 8000. They remember it, they sing it. Then, boom, they called the number and you’re still at work, Kenny Beckett my simplicity? Yes we can. >> Andrew Eight 8000. A true classic. [LAUGHTER] Anthony: RADIO JINGLE hasn’t played for years but you’ve seen the songs on the side of the truck and the drivers’ voices are actually being released by the onlookers as they go on their rides. Shaina: It’ll be in my head now. Going back to NATE SHANE and his SHUTTLEBUS, the idea came when he realized how much money he had spent on rent in 20 years, roughly $200,000. He panicked and said there must be better
