But is it art?


I suppose it is an art installation. It wasn't there much more than a week I think. A sign informed me the land belongs to Vic Track. Vic Track is part of the public transport bureaucracy responsible for train and tram tracks. I can't judge its artistic merit, but as I always say, if it attracts attention and make people stop, look and wonder, then it works. It was set up on some unused vacant land near Moreland railway station.

  1. Looks like plastic carrierbags drying in the wind, so it must be Art!

  2. Geez, I didn't realise they had put my boxers out to dry in Melbourne!

  3. They magically appeared one morning and the other day I saw a group of people, possibly the installers, taking them down. A nice distraction. Reminded me of Bali.

  4. Yes Peter, every opportunity to dry things outdoors should be taken.

    Boxers Victor? Not Bonds Y Fronts?

    Of course Rob. You would have seen them. Why a Bali reminder?

  5. True Andrew; not boxers but not Bonds Y Fronts either....

  6. Might then be what we used to refer to as Jockettes, a brand name. What are they called now? Bikini brief?

  7. Dearest Andrew, you seem exceedingly keen to get into my underwear.

    Very well then. As you surmise I am a brand name gay man so you will not be surprised that my current support wear of choice bear the initials CK - you can guess the name from that.

    The style is referred to as 'trunks' and as a gay man of a certain age whose days of frivolousness are long past they are coloured either white or black; nothing else.

    Any other information...let's say, for example, pouch dimensions...remain mine to disclose in more intimate circumstances than these.

  8. I have seen other rubbish 'art 'installations down at the Merri Creek. I have a post on it to write. I suspect they may be related - perhaps to raise awareness of the huge number of plastic bags and so forth that are still floating around in the local environment.

  9. Victor, I just need to know what sort of underwear people of a certain age wear so that I am informed for when I reach that point.

    LiD.I love plastic bags, but never will you see any of mine floating around. They are recycled a couple of times before going into the plastic bag recycling bin that has appeared in our recycling room. Your future post sounds interesting.
