Could you do with a novel and humorous perspective on bed bugs? New York’s street artist, Hunter Fine, has created nine miniature bed bug hotels, and super-glued each installation to the façade of known tenement buildings with bed bug infestations. This novel and creative art project is really a public service to warn perspective tenants and motivate the landlords into action. Mr. Fine states on the Tumblr site for the initiative:
“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. Send your pics and we’ll post your own bed bug hotels. firstname.lastname@example.org”.
He further encourages DIY installations by printing the pictures of his hotels from Tumblr and post where confirmed bed bug infestations are problematic. My favourite unit is the Bed Bug Bed & Breakfast – they probably have a special for lunch and dinner too!
