A few months back Chicago residents noticed a familiar sight as they walked through the city. Street corners like Albany Avenue were marked with popular Monopoly boardgame squares. Walking a little further, a pair of dice and large “Chance” and “Community Chest” cards were spotted bolted to the sidewalk.
The pieces are part of an installation by artist collective, Bored. The site doesn’t give much information on the group but a blogger recently contacted them to ask about the art. They explain “the goal of this entire project has been to present something different than a stencil painted on the ground or a poster pasted to a wall. Something 3-dimensional that can be picked up, beaten down, kicked, yanked, grabbed, and broken. And if someone ever put forth the effort to remove it, like a weed it will always grow back. And if left alone it will evolve into something different.”
