Rosemary Goes Shopping!!!!

Artist Rosemary Williams is podcasting her adventures at the Mall of America.



She devised a plan to create a sculpture from shopping bags obtained from every store in the MOA. Rosemary quickly discovered that the stores were unwilling to part with a shopping bag without a purchase, so she engaged in a bit of performance art....she would buy an item from every store in the mall and then return the item (sans bag) the next day! In the end she spent over $15,000 and returned, well, most of the items.

The podcasts can be found at http://www.rosemarygoestothemall.com/.

It's amazing how people can run with crazy ideas and turn it into such a life project! I would love to do something crazy like that.
