That's some expensive garbage...
The artist says "The question of beauty has been brought up a lot in this debate, which is a really provocative and sometimes problematic conversation," she said. "I don't think all work that is made in a public setting should necessarily be made with the mandate of making a space more beautiful."
maybe not made IN a public setting, but made FOR a public setting should add to the esthetic, not detract. If it can't add to the esthetic is should at least be visually obvious that the artist was making a statement. I don't think her art makes a visual statement other then the garbage men might be on strike.
