22 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.16 THE BIT SPACES Photo by Adam Mescan Number of literal tree huggers at Bernheim this spring who broke the Guinness World Record for "most people hugging trees at the same time at the same place." 1,416 The foursome Often Seen Rarely Spoken has a decade-long background in public art. Member Jeremy Lewis is reluctant to say "graffti," but until recently, that's been the majority of their work. "Now in our mid- to late 20s, we're saying, 'Is this really what we want to be doing?' We all have full-time jobs that we love. Do we really want to throw that away?" says Lewis, who is a project manager and in charge of marketing and sales for the Event Company. They've started attracting clients that can offer large spaces for progressive ideas. "Not just your basic Kroger logo on the side of a building," Lewis says. More like this abstract, entwined snakeskin pattern at Medusa Hair Salon on Hubbards Lane — a job that took them 35 hours to complete using a digital projection of their design, pencils, paintbrushes and interior acrylic paint. "We're not going out of our way to vandalize but going out of our way to make the city a better place with beautiful colors on everything," Lewis says. "Subliminally, that can weigh on people without them knowing." — Mary Chellis Austin
