Boulder's Mysterious, Insomniac Sculptor



A resident of Boulder, Colorado, recently woke to discover that a large, bizarre, solar-powered sculpture had been erected in her front lawn overnight. That's not even the weirdest part. This is the SECOND time it's happened to the very same lady.

I love the fact that she thinks it's "kinda cool." Just one more reason I wish I had a front yard. Here's the question of the day. Let's say you discover a statue in your front yard one morning. Then you hear that your neighbor's security cameras may have captured the artist on tape. Would you watch the footage--or enjoy the mystery?

OH MY GOD MY HOMETOOOOWWWWWNNNNN xD

Yeah. I live in Boulder. Everyone's talking about this--as you can imagine, nothing but nothing happens in Boulder. So this is big freaking news.

This lady is a local celebrity.

Personally, I think it's my student art teacher. He's a shifty character, in a flipping awesome kind of way. xD

I agree, having a random sculpture appear on your front lawn is strangely awesome. Heving it be the second time it has happened is just weird. I wish that happened to me. I'd love it.

Okay, i would watch the footage, but purpously not look at his face unless he was someone I knew. I wish that happened to me.

I would just love the mystery and the suspicion- but not the attention.

I think I would enjoy the mystery... Kirsten, your posts are really awesome! I wish I had that much talent you have in entertaining people :)

I'd enjoy my mystery, or try to figure it out for myself.
Looking at the security camera would be a last resort if I couldn't figure it out or if things got serious.
Hehe Boulder.

I might look at the security footage, but I might also fib about what the art placer looked like.

"She was about six feet tall, had long blond hair, and had a marmot in her anorak pocket."

Oh, and Narrator, are people having odd reactions, like they did to the girl art gang in The Plain Janes?

I would watch the video. If I didn't, the suspense would make my head explode.
