New Sculpture at Algonquin College


I spotted a new sculpture at Algonquin College yesterday on my way to the bus stop after work. The sculpture was erected between the new Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence and the Transitway.

I believe these three shopping carts of different sizes are making a statement about consumerism and elevated expectations.

I would have taken more photos and studied the sculpture longer, but the 95 came and I had to run.

You might find this project interesting. I thought of it the minute I saw your photo! It is about the Field Guide to the Stray Shopping Carts of North America. http://www.montagueprojects.com/cart-project-overview/

Wow. That is intense. I know so little about stray shopping carts.
