A big thank you and shout out to Jon over at Happy Mundane for educating me about this artist, Joshua Allen Harris. He makes these animals (Air Bear shown above) out of discarded plastic bags, ties them to subway ventilation grates and when the subway speeds by they fill with air and dance around. When the train passes and they deflate, it most unsettling and slightly creepy but fantastic at the same time. How resourceful and imaginative! You must watch the video to get the full effect.
