We noticed today that there is some new street art outside our house. It seems to be a little figure made from a piece of wood veneer, a coaster and some Carlton Draught bottle caps.
There are other similar figures on power poles going down the street and around the corner.
What does it mean having a little person out in the street, staring at you each time you go outside the house? Often it is difficult to get any eye contact from people out in the street. Our street is pretty quiet, and when you do pass someone on the footpath it can feel a bit impersonal. I think these artworks could be a reminder for us that this is a place for people.
