    What an amazing concept, and the details are just astonishing.

    It’s interesting how all of the carts are facing the same way… Perhaps that’s part of the narrative. Thoughts?

    I think the direction of the carts serves more for a constant to the variable of the contents of them. I definitely think there’s a certain narrative, but my initial hunch was one of an intrigue in objects or maybe a political stance on consumerism. I immediately thought of the homeless and why they choose the objects they do (utility vs. relics).

    You guys don’t know what you’re talking about. These pieces satirize the people that admire them (specifically those willing to pay for them or those that want them in their gallery). Get out of your own little world and go out on the streets of any major city and you’ll see REAL carts like this. Pushed by REAL people that are too busy trying to survive to care about art.

      Dude, these are up for interpretation. Don’t shoot your mouth around like you know all about it. That’s the POINT of art, there is no direct correlation to a meaning because art is up for interpretation. So please, leave your bigotry behind.
