Wooster Collective: Watching Banksy

We came across an article at Wooster Collective about a man who filmed passers by looking at a Banksy piece: here

"For over an hour, Jeremy Gibbs stood across the street from a fresh piece by Banksy on Essex Road and filmed people who stopped to look at the piece and take photos.

What we find to be most important about the video is the diversity of the people who stopped, noticed, and most importantly - appreciated - the work. The video is a terrific testament to the 'value' of street art." WoosterCollective.com

This relates to what we have been exploring in terms of the notion of the gallery. Public art reaches a diverse audience and is stumbled across - the fact the viewer has 'discovered' a piece of art makes it exciting.
