I had an errand in Manhattan this weekend, and even though I was only in a small area near Union Square there were several weird and wonderful things that caught my eye.
This giant installation, called Metronome, is on the side of three buildings facing the Square. I didn't realize at the time that the digital clock to the left was part of it, so it's not in my photo. Apparently it comes to life at noon and midnight! The installation has its own webpage where you can read about it or watch this interesting video, see it in action and discover its link to George Washington. I love crazy, public art. Life would be so boring without it.
New Yorkers: they don't mince words.
I loved this yarn at the farmer's market even more when I saw that it was all made with natural dyes. Gorgeous. It almost makes me want to take up knitting. Almost.
What crazy things have you been seeing lately?
