Flaming Cactus - An Art Installation in Astor Place
“Flaming Cactus” is an art project thought up by ANIMUS Art which has been installed in Astor Place for the Department of Transportation’s Summer Streets. It’s made by wrapping plastic neon-colored cable ties around light poles to transform them into hairy urban cacti!
Check out the photos below, and stop by Astor Place to see it in person.
Update: The New York Times writes that the ties may stay in place until June 2012!
