Shopping Cart Art

Artists love to turn ordinary things into art, and what could be more ordinary than shopping carts (or shopping trolleys, if you're on the other side of the Atlantic)?

Here's a quickie Neatorama feature of 4 works of art that have one thing in common: they're all made from shopping carts.

Akquisition 33/77 (2008) by Eberhard Bosslet, featuring 110 carts

Applied Geometry (2004) by Robert Wechsler (This one you have to see the larger format to appreciate it fully)

Ptolemy Elrington, who created wonderfully whimsical creatures out of hubcaps, has also done a few sculptures created from discarded shopping carts rescued from the rivers and canals in England.

Yes, these are miniature shopping carts (like the ones you can get from the NeatoShop), but it's still very cool. Behold Trolling#1, by Matt McVeigh.

Even though it would take probably 10 people and a crane....someone totally needs to make that loopy loop one (the last picture) out of real shopping carts in parking lot.

The store shopping cart lackeys would $h!t a brick.
