Celebrate Downtown Kansas City Toy Train Art

Artist statement for the "connect-the-dots" piece that adorns toy train stops . . .

"At night, viewers will activate LED lights in colored PVC tube sections of the sculpture by touching the metal disks between them while waiting for the Streetcar. The series of tubes represent voices, synapses, chemical and conceptual synergy as well as sculptural elements of conjoined, colored light that change intensity of light. The strong lighting elements in our pieces are the powerful points at which memories are formed, celebrations of past present and future, cultural chandeliers. The sculpture will be in constant flux because of its interactive nature, and will invite foot traffic in the downtown area to connect and engage with its changing outcome."

This has to be a joke! What a load of pseudo intellectual crap. Did some flim flam artist actually get the city to pay for this?

As astonishingly silly as this is, it's really no worse than the rest of the "cutting edge" nonsense that has been sold to the empty-headed rubes at 12th and Oak.
The taxpayers have been burdened by a little group of make-believe self-appointed urban futurists, mostly from small mid-west rural communities, who have been diligently working to create their version of what they think city life is all about.
What's actually there is a heavily-subsidized store front movie set artificial reality that more resembles an amusement park than an environment that actual regular humans would ever consider living in, much less raising their families in.
Bubbles of "investment" based on fads and debts have a way of deflating or even blowing up and usually take quite a lot with them when they do.
Fantasyland on the plains.
