Spotted during my morning blog-surf: This art group has installed viewing platforms outside of some gated communities in Los Angeles and posted about it on their blog.
On April 24, 2005, Heavy Trash volunteers deposited bright orange viewing platforms in front of three Los Angeles gated communities; Brentwood Circle, Park La Brea and Laughlin Park. The purpose of these viewing platforms is to draw attention to the phenomenon of gated communities -- the fastest growing form of housing in the United States.What's funny to me is that I lived in Park LaBrea (PLB!) a few years ago and didn't like it. Its so big there that I got lost inside the community on the first day and I couldn't get out.
