Inflatable Subway Art?

Artist Joshua Allen Harris decided one day to make an inflatable bear that automatically inflates when the subway passes by.

The flacid bear gets attached to a subway grate. The flow of air passing up from below as the train goes by inflates the bear to full, four-legged stance.

I’m not really sure if i find the bear itself a little creepy though. Either way, it is very cool.

I’m shocked the artist wasn’t arrested by homeland security though.

  1. One imagines these being pretty useful. If you’re running to catch the train and the bear’s standing tall, you know you ought to run faster!
