The newest street installation from NYC art collective FAILE didn’t last very long. Despite being bolted to the sidewalk of North 6th Street in Williamsburg, the carved wooden post with a spinning prayer wheel on top has disappeared after less than a week. While it’s not clear who removed the piece, the motivation for doing so is: their work fetches tens of thousands of dollars.
