A big city is full of information overload. How does someone not in the loop know which buildings have bed bugs and which do not? Incensed that a friend unknowingly moved into a bed bug infested building and subsequently had to dispose of most possessions, artist, Hunter Fine decided to inform the public through art.
His website, Bed Bug Hotels has pictures of buildings known to be infested with bed bugs. In addition to the Tumblr site, each building is tagged with a piece of art identifying the building as containing bed bugs. Fine and his group hope that the concept will go viral. Others are encouraged to participate in tagging bed bug infested buildings and sending pictures to the site for posting.
We are an informative and benevolent group of citizens who care about information. We want to warn people before they move into a building that has bed bugs. Copycats welcome.
Don’t let the bed bugs bite.
