Shopping Cart Holiday Tree

14 years ago artist Anthony Schmitt designed his first shopping cart holiday tree at the Frank O. Gehry designed Edgemar mall in Santa Monica California. It was inspired by the aluminum trees of the 1960's and the platinum hair of a friend's mother . It has become an annual tradition.
“The shopping cart tree symbolizes both generosity and abundance, as well as acknowledging those less fortunate where their whole world may be housed in a cart.  We see shopping carts everyday and take them for granted.  Individually the beauty of an everyday object may become invisible, but in quantity you can’t miss it”, remarks Schmitt. - Via Inhabitat
