Why’s this here?
"Bat bombs were bomb-shaped casings with numerous compartments, each containing a Mexican Free-tailed Bat with a small timed incendiary bomb attached. Dropped from a bomber at dawn, the casings would deploy a parachute in mid-flight and open to release the bats which would then roost in eaves and attics.
I started this feed to collect and showcase the tags, writings, and pastes I walk by every day in and around the Lower East Side. It’s not one big explosion, but 1000 little ones waiting to go.
The work shown here is of the artists. I am just taking pictures.
