The normal way to tackle a community problem: Write a petition, show up at a city council meeting, write a letter to the editor... you know the drill. The artists' way: Make it into a giant installation. That's just what graphic design student Pete Dungey
did with his frustrations over Britain's uneven roads -- hence, the pothole gardens project
. He filled the offending dips and holes with small gardens, highlighting the pothole problem in a most beautiful way. (And doing a service to drivers -- it's all to easy to drive into a pothole by mistake, but a pothole filled with a lovely garden? You can bet we'd be driving around it.) More cool photos of the project after the jump.
