12:43 am
berlin she keeps our eye to the ground. everyone else walks by without noticing but she stops and looks she's a tank stand designer and she's. manhole covers to hurt their art on the street. when i'm up i'm always on the lookout and i really do find new things it's fun when you find new things it's like finding a treasure. she had the idea to print manhole covers on t. shirts and backs she needs is some tape some ink and a knife for just the right composition she's especially taken with berlin symbol bloodbath. that the noise printing a new element is great it's really fun. especially when you see it printed for the first time. so business may look a little silly. i'm not exactly sure why i do it this way i just started doing it
12:44 am
and i had a great time i like to work outside and you have the social contact it's a whole new approach to the work. she has to work fast before the ink dries in the sun she lands the t. shirt on the street presses it down and then pills it off she calls it pirate printing and strictly speaking the designs are pirated. it's not actually about pirating but about drawing attention to these completely overlooked patents and giving them new value. the pirate printer has turned her idea into a fashion label and she's not just printing in berlin anymore. interesting manhole covers can be found the world over in vienna or paris amsterdam and lisbon every single day shirt is handmade and unique sandusky it's great that people like a manhole cover tee shirts and street prints and that they appreciate having a t. shirt that's different maybe they feel they'd rather have a hand printed t.

12:46 am
think it's nice just like other people do and we clean up afterwards so the cover ends up cleaner than it was before. it's more the pirates bring to the ranks people's gaze downwards gives the manhole cover a whole new meaning. just goes to so doesn't that thinking outside the box is often the case a success and happiness and that might just apply to the activities that are coming up in our high five today yes that's next it's time for five fun facts of the week and we're going to now feature some rather unique ways to entertain your dog. find the final usual fun activities for your dog. welcome to the dog beach but don't expect to play go fish. come here to ride the
