So delighted and intrigued by this.
For those who want to hunt it yourselves, I came across it in WillyB, near the new developments going on by the waterfront (forgive me I NEVER remember which street is which in Williamsburg)
The piece is instantly engaging, entertaining and inspired these questions in my mind:
Who's the artist(s)?
What's the mechanics involved in installing?
What's the message? Simple whimsy, typical WillyB irony, a statement about green-spaces killed by development? (it's place on the boundary wall of a construction site) or meant to be all of the above.
Overall exactly what art in general and street art in particular should be in my measure; instigation and interaction with the street and world beyond.
