NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: “INSANE WITH RESTLESSNESS”

New York has a trip-hammer vitality which drives you insane with restlessness, if you have no inner stabilizer…. In New York I have always felt lonely, the loneliness of the caged animal, which brings on crime, sex, alcohol and other madnesses. – Henry Miller

BRONX, NEW YORK STREET ART: MY MONTH WITH BANKSY ~ “SHOE SHINE”

Here are some pics from two Bronx locations today.

From untappedcities.com:

For Day 16, Banksy has created a fiberglass replica of a sad Ronald McDonald having his shoes shined by a real person outside a McDonald’s in the South Bronx. According to Banksy’s website, “The sculpture will visit the sidewalk outside a different McDonalds every lunchtime for the next week.”

The accompanying audio guide says “Ronald [is] arguably the most sculpted figure in history after Christ” The sculpture is “a critique of the heavy labor required to sustain the polished image of mega-corporation…Does this era have feet of clay and a massively large footprint to boot?”

The narrator also notes that the face is actually of the Greek God Hermes.

from wiki: 

In some myths Hermes is a trickster, and outwits other gods for his own satisfaction or the sake of humankind.
