December 27, 2012 – Gishwhes Scavenger Hunt

There are new things in this world that have only recently come to my attention.  Evidently, the Gishwhes (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World HAs Ever Seen) is one of them. The website proclaims ” This content is captured as videos or images to memorialize the annual Gishwhes experience. Art pieces range from the touching: “Take a picture of you hugging a war veteran” or “Create a video of you visiting a children’s hospital and giving a puppet show” to the weirdly sublime: “an image of a formal tea party replete with parasols, silverware and a string quartet situated in a junkyard or garbage dump” or “a fully dressed storm trooper cleaning a pool next to a sunbather”.

Exhibit One from this year – make a tea house out of recycled materials and have a tea party under a bridge.  Good thing this creek ran dry near our place.

Have a dog take a human for a walk.
