Hot Dogs in Hot Love. Banksy is back with a gallery show in NYC featuring crazy robotic food. At least I hope these are robots.

NYT article, that I just coincidentally finished reading. Then I spent a few moments lamenting the fact that there is no earthly way I could possibly get to NYC before Halloween. Put me squarely in the BANKSY IS AWESOME camp.

I'm right there with you, mgl. I'm at work and just literally burst out laughing at some of these pieces. Wicked and clever.

They were doing another one of his rat murals outside my building this morning. I will have to go to that gallery show and thank him for putting a giant rat right outside my front door. It's a hell of a way to snap you out of a hangover.

Banksy doing a gallery installation involving food? Oh, please don't go all Damien Hirst on us.

*clicks links*

Oh, good.

I'm in the Banksy Rocks camp, though my hipster friends (who introduced me to his work in the first place) all say "meh."

I'll be there on Saturday with my old B&W SLR.

Things like this make me happy to live in NYC :)

This is good.
Creepy. Simple. Humorous. Popular. Unpretentious. Free. Easy to copy and play with in your kitchen. Unsettling. Fun. Makes you see the daily world differently.

I was fully prepared for this to be more ridiculously overrated sophomoric shite, but, no, it's actually pretty good, very funny stuff. Nice one, Banksy.
