ASSHOLES ARE JUST PART OF THE LANDSCAPE AROUND HERE




(photos of the sculpture installation on the Lower East Side by Brad Downey and Mike Wrobel)

Downey was in town for a flash recently, but long enough to team up with Mike Wrobel to make and install an 8 ft. high bench on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. He asked me to document it for him, since the lifespan of this type of work is always questionable. Soon after I took these photos, the piece was removed by the DOT. But only after it made the news. Check out the articles in the NY Post, and AM New York. The DOT was nice enough to post flyers notifying the owner of the piece that they could come claim the work within 48 hours, before they scrapped it. I'm sure there wouldn't be any NYPD representatives present if someone did in fact show up to claim it, none at all. . .

Keepin' the holiday push going, here's a slightly melancholy Xmas track, along with last year's "Xmas Mix '06." Oh joy.
