Add a Useless Rope by Beetle bomb

August 11th, 2009 10:03 PM

INSTRUCTIONS: I seldom find in my adventures that a rope has been positioned in a way which fascinates me without being helpful, such as perhaps turning a piece of public art and a tree into the supports for a giant spiderweb.

Install a useless rope or string.

this summer I worked on the campus of Illinois State University. The quad is home to many trees, one of which now holds not one, but two useless ropes. on the end of each rope is a sign. one says pull, the other says push : )
the best part of this task was going out on my lunch break and watching people eagerly run up and pull the rope as hard as they could to no avail, then go to the other side of the tree and try to figure out how to push a rope. (sadly I could not capture any of the attempts, but they were ever so amusing)

The 'push' sign...genius.
