The other day, there was one loafer on the floor of my office lobby. A lonely loafer, respectable brownish-black leather, bright red on the inside.
The first thing I thought: “Who lost one bright-red-inside loafer in the lobby, and how?”
The second: “Now, that could be some great office-lobby art.”
Seriously, though: one loafer, bright red inside. A briefcase. An umbrella. Scattered here and there, fixed to the floor. That would be interesting and entertaining office-lobby art, it would say something interesting about offices and lobbies. And it would be visually striking, especially if the briefcase and umbrella were also, say, bright red inside.
Imagine: office-lobby art with actual content, something kinda clever, not just there to gesture vaguely in the direction of Art. Stranger things have happened, right?
