Baby Flinging – New York

new-york-baby

Brooklyn, New York 2015

Shoe flinging is the practice of throwing shoes whose laces have been tied together so that they hang from overhead power lines or telephone cables. Shoe flinging is thought to have many purposes, some examples are to define street gang territories, to pinpoint a drug dealing zone, or to commemorate a life or death event. Baby flinging, on the other hand, is a newer practice, which many believe is being used to mark the boundaries of rogue evil clown gangs in the rougher sections of Brooklyn.

    A little sick. Reminds me of the guy hanging from the rooftop. Was that in Prague?

    • Yes. “Man Hanging Out” by David Černý, a Prague artist. The man is Sigmund Freud.
