Woo-hoo, Big Foot in Queens!

There is a yeti loose in Long Island City. And by yeti, I mean a piece by artist Cameron Gainer at the Socrates Sculpture Park, which is on display through March 4 as part of their Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition.

I actually visited the sculpture a couple weeks ago, but I was just thinking of her today because it’s raining quite hard outside. Big Foot is a concrete base covered in fake fur, and she was remarkably immaculate when I saw her. I wonder how well she will hold up to the elements over the next half year. The sculpture is also remarkably interactive – I had a lot of fun styling her bangs, first standing up straight like David Bowie’s fright wig in “Labyrinth,” and then hanging over her eyes like Nico.

It has often been brought to my attention that Blythe dolls creep people out. Therefore, I won’t offend certain delicate sensibilities. Instead, here’s a photo of an installation that is also at the park right now:
