Art is in the eyes of the beholder (is that how the saying goes?), and perhaps this girl finds it really unique. Or perhaps she doesn’t even know what’s happening on her back – and she never will, because how can you see your back? I wonder how long she’s been walking around like this without anyone telling her.
This is part of the urban alienation we’ve been talking about – only in the big city, when you see someone walking around like this (probably without her knowledge), you don’t say anything. This is unfortunate to watch, but then again, when it comes to New York, it could very well be intended. I guess we’ll never know.
