This installation, called "Saw, Sawing" is outside a Tokyo convention center. If you're in Philly, this is done by the same gent responsible for the clothespin: Claes Oldenburg. He has always been intrigued by the art in everyday items.

"Intrigued by the art in everyday items," is he? I suppose that's one way of saying he's not particularly creative.

What everyday item is next, a garbage can?

Wasn't it in Chicago where they had the cows all over the city?

What everyday item is next

Have you seen the piece "Split Button" in front of the Van Pelt library at Penn? Another Oldenburg.

if you think that's bad... here in toronto we just wrapped up a year of MOOSE all over the place. canadians aren't akin to the stereotype... and it's really stupid when the city gov't reinforces those stereotypes.

stupid moose even went to the olympics... then they had a moose race... then a moose auction. wow, a real tourist draw that must ah been... lets get all the hicks from the sticks to come in and see the fiberglass moose painted by incompetant buffoons and adorned with corporate slogans and advertising.

yuck, even my company had a moose.

That one's at least vaguely amusing, provided you know that it's supposed to be a button from one of Benjamin Franklin's jackets which splits due to his girth. But only <b>vaguely</b> amusing at that.

Very vaguely,

It's better than that. The split is supposed to be the river, and the four holes are supposed to represent William Penn's four original Philadelphia squares.

Uhh, but the squares are between the rivers, there's no river between the squares. Oh well, I guess you don't need correct geography to do art.

NY, too. But I think they copied Chicago.
