That's an art installation, titled Dispersed Arguments, by Matt Pych. He used birdseeds to spell out common arguments. I guess it's sort of a public intervention on an arguing couple, saying that arguments are for the birds anyhow!
This was part of the Dumbo Arts Center's Art Under the Bridge Festival: Link to the pic above | Gallery - via scoboco
The converse of course are those "artists" that can't seem to create anything that anyone is willing to pay for (with their OWN money). If they only survive off government teat (whether outight welfare or through Arts sponsorship programs) then they are but parasites and worthy of rebuke & scorn.
