In Which There is "Art"

Our apartment, while gradually getting more and more furnished, is substantially lacking in one segment – decoration. Yes, we’ve got our little lanterns and the occasional couch pillow, and we’ve got a bunch more waiting at the ready, but for now (beyond the bathroom, goodness know why THAT got decorated first) all we’ve got on our walls is this:

Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Starter Set

Yes, you read that caption right, this charming piece of “modern art” is a Hot Wheels track. As in, small toy cars racing down our wall.

When the Boy first brought it home from work  – don’t ask questions – I was somewhat appalled at the idea of attaching a plastic toy car race track to our walls. But I have to say, I’ve kind of gotten used to it. And that car takes the loop FAST. We probably won’t leave it in its current location (I suggested making a big frame for it and putting it up as an art installation), but for now…Hot Wheels as art. Can we sell this to MOCA?
