On a Miracle on 35th Street
In which The Gay Recluse ponders random acts of beauty garbage.
So yesterday we wrote about a giant-tote-bag-and-broken-sawhorse installation on 35th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. Today we are happy to report that not only has the installation survived, but that it has grown!
This is facing west. We like the way the new and more chic cardboard box on the left is juxtaposed with the more tattered version on the right.
On this side, looking east, we see a more traditional arrangement, which effectively alludes to a garbage heap while transcending the form, particularly in the context of the passing midtown pedestrians.
But that’s not all! For some, the installation has taken on even greater meaning. A “humble reader” sent in the below images with the following note:
In the name of [Redacted], this must NOT be moved!!!
Umm, ok, humble reader. Let’s see what’s going on here:
Woah Nellie! Why didn’t we see that?
[Redacted] fucking [Redacted]! A miracle on 35th Street!
