Elbowtoe, this is not a urinal, nyc

Elbowtoe says:

“A little explanation of the piece for those that are curious. There is a guy in this neighborhood that goes around with chalk marking spots not as urinals of critiquing graffiti.

It got me thinking.

This piece is basically a mashup of Duchamp’s Fountain and Magritte’s Ceci n’est pas une pipe, two pieces that question the relation of signs to their designata.”
