Plastic Owl Art in the Steam Punk City!

A sub genre of tagging in Canada is the erection of the plastic owl. This form of tagging is not designed to assert ownership over viewspace designed to impede the boundaries of public use of that space in a way free of force, but to assert ownership over geese, which shit on beaches, which makes them undesirable for condo owners with beach towels …


… and to deter starlings and robins from eating cherries in July.



Like regular tagging …



… it makes the artist feel liberated for awhile, but leaves behind magnificent gestures. Without the graffiti police, what fun would tagging be? Without birds, what fun plastic owls?

All artists need an audience, right?
