seen in downtown St. John's

There are lots of different things to see on the streets of St. John's during the summertime. This one looks like a bit of fun, but it has a serious side.

It's actually an art installation by Sandee Moore from Manitoba. Here's the blurb from the sponsoring gallery Eastern Edge.

"Inspired by her own unwillingness to take off her backpack to find money to give to homeless people, Sandee Moore's Imaginary Gift began when she started anonymously dispensing gifts, both useful (coffee) and wonderful (bubbles), to people on the street below her fourth floor studio window in a gesture of non-capitalist public exchange."

seen didn't hit the button to see if it got coffee or bubbles.
