    @ Geekman – Sad, but so so true. This would probably have shut down the subway for hours and made the top of the 5 and 11 pm news.

    I love ephemeral art like I love no other art.

    @ #5 – I saw those on the Wooster site a while back. I think it must be the same artist. Brilliant.

    Mark Jenkins has made some really neat human and animal sculptures out of tape. Pesco’s covered them quite a bit, here are a couple of examples:

    It amazes me how the human form can evoke so much emotion simply through posture and placement. Jenkins’ fake people installations are wonderful examples.

    “And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that’s the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and… this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video’s a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember… and I need to remember… Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in.”
