In the descriptive text accompanying these images about their year-end excursion and touristing, they paint an apocalyptic scene – references to sex and prostitution and corruption and citywide celebrations at temples as they say they spread their large format wheat-pastes across Bangkok, Pattaya and Koh Samet.
Here are the images they contributed to the Thai streetscape and various abandoned lots.
One can only imagine what the children and workers and families walking in these neighborhoods think when they see these images.
For their part, the artists returned to their homes and studios in Oakland and San Francisco to create more work.

‘Spiritual Roots.’

On a tour of Wat Mahathat, a temple in Ayutthaya, Thailand, Your Shot member Julian Bound spotted a large stone Buddha head sitting encased in a tree.
“Its roots are said to have grown around the sculpture during a time when the temple lay abandoned and overgrown,” Bound writes.
“Drawn to the uniqueness of the statue, I knelt down to take the shot as rich sunlight played across the Buddha’s features, making sure to capture the ground before the tree to give depth and scale to the image.”
