Strange outburst of tupperware

By simto - 30 November 2006 24

In driving through Civic today, there appears to be strange phenomenon afflicting the West end of Alinga street (along the Wig and Pen/PJ O’Reillys/Smith’s Bookstore end in particular) – lots of the poles and signage are decorated in weird plasticy things that look awfully like a tupperware salad spinner.

Does anybody know what this is in aid of? I’ll try to get a pic sometime tonight so that the true oddity of these items can be appreciated.

UPDATED: Ari appears to have the answer.

Another update: Sue-Ellen has sent in the following note and a picture:

DOMAIN 2006 is a temporary public art project funded by ACT Government’s Community Outreach Program, and co-ordinated by the ANU School of Art. Artists are selected by application.

Tupperware colanders are called Totems for Ming Ming.

Behind bus stop down from Pig & When is The Big Box by Charlie Sofo (ACT) which is where you can read this information.

What’s Your opinion?

Well, some people have already started to try to grab them off the poles, however they’re not budging very far. And considering they all have great bleeding holes down the middle of ’em, you probably can’t use them for your kitchen anyway.

So if I needed one of those for the kitchen am I able to just go and take one?

More tax dollars pissed up the wall? I bet these plastic colanders cost a lot less than $5000 a pop, or whatever it is the Howard govt is giving away in (not means tested) middle class welfare to people who pop out babies.

A controversial installation always gets my vote. What would everyone prefer, some (groan) colonial era pictures of some aussie blokes shearing a fucking sheep? Blah.

Nice analogy seepi, I agree with you. Everyone else here is a cranky old bastard.
