Reaction and Interaction

For over an hour, Jeremy Gibbs stood across the street from a fresh piece by Banksy on Essex Road and filmed people who stopped to look at the piece and take photos.

It is interesting to me the diversity of people who stop to admire the piece and the way they interact with it too. It's not surprising that Banksy would get this kind of attention, but at the same time I could never imagine this much interaction with street art would ever be possible coming from the audience. In this sort of scenario it makes me feel that street art does bring some values.
