Real pay as you sit benches in China? Really?

 Life imitates art. It seems the art installation, "pay as you sit" bench created by Fabian Brunsing, which was meant as a commentary on commericiazation creeping into public spaces, has actually inspired officials in China. The art installation was previous blogged about at AQuiet Sit Down and when I saw it, I thought, "oh no, someone is going to really build that." Well, there you have. Hit the link to see the real deal, and watch the video to see the installation.

  1. I torn between thinking that it is a genius idea and being shocked at the greed of the person who came up with it. Don't seem to get much time for the money either...
