After 10 years of exploring the world and making LEGO interventions to city walls and masonry in disrepair, artist Jan Vormann invites you to contribute to the ongoing project Dispatchwork. Vormann began making these toy-block repairs in Bocchignano, Italy, and since has made colorful additions to Tel Aviv and Berlin. Jan Vormann has visited nearly 40 cities across Europe, Central America, Asia, and the United States. Some of the installations use a handful of toy bricks while some have used up to 20 pounds. Some have perceived the patchwork as a plea for a more permanent repair, Vormann explains in response to having his colorful bricks replaced with real brick and mortar within days of the intervention. Jan Vormann describes Dispatchwork as a way to take back public spaces, making their mark in a playful way. Many have taken it upon themselves as artists and children-at-heart to contribute to Dispatchwork, aligning with the playful and lofty mission of the work.
