A New York-based artist Pratima Naithani has tricked out a short bus as an India-centric “multi-media, mobile art installation” The Sweet Shop, doubling as a free shuttle between SCOPE and neighboring fairs in March. The bus is “festooned with striking symbols” like a clip-art Taj Mahal and etch-o-sketchy Ghandi.
The overlap of its internal India street-noise loop and NYC traffic might be even harsher than realizing that even though you’ve just climbed into a magical-looking bus, this time there’re no “special treats” involved. May still be alluring if the whole lotta press release mentioned free candy. Hint.
