Sigh... I'm falling in love with Banksy all over again. I know this has been on all the blogs today but it's such a brilliant idea, that I couldn't pass over posting it here as well. Banksy's newest exhibit in New York comes in the form of a pet store. The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill is now the home to a leopard print coat, hot dog hamsters, fish stick fish, chicken McNuggets drinking BBQ sauce, and my favorite, nesting CCTV cameras. All the "pets" are animated and viewable from within the small store, or from the street. Be sure to watch the videos for the full effect.
Banksy's comments on the exhibition were 'New Yorkers don't care about art, they care about pets. So I'm exhibiting them instead'. I'm swooning at the bad attitude. For more info check out Wooster Collective's coverage.
