Shopping Cart Art
Residents of Campbelltown, Australia woke on Sunday to find that someone (presumably teenagers) had stacked shopping carts from local stores into a big pyramid outside the train station. This has sparked a debate in the town about the definition of art. Specifically, is the shopping cart pyramid art, or just vandalism? The mayor of Campbelltown, for one, feels that shopping carts (or shopping trolleys, as they say down there) have no legitimate place in art. Carts, he says, "are only to be used to carry groceries from the shops to your car." Links: Macarthur Chronicle

What do the street people of Campbelltown use instead of pushcarts? Especially now that a good number were used for this piece of "art"?

I noticed that the "Modern Liquor Store" cart looks suspiciously like the ones used by Bealls of Florida

I've seen worse art.

It's live real-time philosophy.
