German-born artist Jan Vormann, 27, has spent the past three years travelling the world repairing crumbling walls and monuments with Lego. And he wants you to do the same.

His “Dispatchwork” began in 2007 in the small village of Bocchignano, Italy, as part of the contemporary art festival 20 Eventi. Developing the work in situ, he became intrigued by the makeshift repairs that had been made to thecrumbling walls. The approach favoured function over appearance, reminding Vormann of the haphazard Lego designs created by children.

The artist has worked with volunteers ranging in age from three to 40 years, and his work has captured imaginations worldwide. From Brazil to London, to Germany and the US, other “Dispatchers” are imitating him — look out for their efforts.
