Actually - I was searching for an article which mentioned something I had read years ago...
The links I added below seem to only mention the recent stories...
What I had read - and I don't know if it true at all, is that:
Marcel Duchamp or somebody famous in the Dadaist movement had started throwing shoes... like an anti war symbol?
I think it does kinda fit the movement.
Has anybody heard of something like this?
Oohh... great pic!! Thanks! :))
I didn't know that Marcel Duchamp is supposed to have instigated this - but I can tell you that you see the shoes over the wires all throughout the suburbs of Sydney :P There is an urban myth that if you see shoes over the wires like this - then close by you can buy drugs. That's definitely a myth as far as I know!
"Tucson Electric Power officials added that in any given week, 5 to 10 pairs of sneakers are removed from power lines all over the city of Tucson: "The highest periods of activity seem to be after school lets out for the summer break," as well as holidays."
