Highline Park, Saturday afternoon, 8/13.
Among throngs enjoying the gorgeous weather by walking the Highline, one figure walked a head above the rest... There were so many people, and it was so hot, why on earth does that guy have another head strapped on top of his head? PEY?
Right. It's art. Moving art! The artist himself, Matthias Alfen, thrilled to stop and pose for a picture, seemed neither hot nor bothered. He handed me his card and encouraged future sightings. I wonder if there are any art meets at which he can be his team's mascot? After checking out his YouTube channel, I also wonder if his work even needs the support of a mini-tramp in order to dunk?
