This Is Not a Urinal.

Text and photocopy pasted on wall by street artist ELBOW-TOE.


A little explanation of the piece for those that are curious. There is a guy in this neighborhood that goes around with chalk marking spots not as urinals of critiquing graffiti.


It got me thinking.


This piece is basically a mashup of Duchamp's Fountain and Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une pipe, two pieces that question the relation of signs to their designata.
