Breathtaking Inanity: Subway “Bombs” as Art

This is just a jaw-dropper: For a sculpture class, two students at Pratt Institute planted suspcious packages in several subway stations and trains for a site-specific installation assignment. According to the Times article:

Reached by telephone last evening, Ms. Davis said she was sorry for what had happened. “The intention of the piece was not to create fear or anything like that,” she said. …

Mr. Barrett, who would not comment on his case, wavered between ebullience and gloom, breaking into an impromptu tap dance one moment, falling into a moody silence in the next.

Now they’re charged with five felonies and facing up to 7 years in jail. Lots of time to do site-specific installations at the big house.
