Hip-Hop Babies never sleep...

This window display is for a business near my house. It's on a street full of strange and wonderfully off-kilter art installations of businesses that don't-know-what-they're-doing.

This business, for instance, sells baby clothes that I think probably never, ever get bought. So they "show" them more than "sell" them, which helps the whole art-installation argument along. But seriously, why do all these mannequins from the 50s look like they've been put in cheesy mainstream hip-hop poses? Who is in charge of this? Or maybe it's the children themselves, coming alive at night and trying to figure out what cool is along with the rest of us.

Disturbing and awesome. Like so many other things out there...
