Pics: Ellis and Lange in Times Square

David Ellis with his sculpture

The latest David Ellis / Roberto Lange trash sculpture has been placed in Times Square (thanks to Anonymous Gallery and Times Square Arts), and will be there through March 8th. Here are a few photos. Videos should be coming soon. That’s when the sculpture will really make sense, since it’s actually a sort of robotic music machine disguised as a pile of rubbish.

The only downside to this piece is that it has to be surrounded by that fence and a sign that reminds people that they are looking at a piece of art. I wish there was some way they could just leave the piece unmarked and film people’s reactions. Then again, these piles of trash retail for up to $50,000 so that might not be the most financially sound idea…
