Lone Ranger

Check this out... A lone Prada "store" in the Lone-Star state of Texas, situated just on the outskirts of the town of Marfa on Route 90. The store is actually an art installation, sans customers or sales people, and consisting of only 20 left-foot shoes and 6 handbags from the Fall/Winter 2005 collection- the same season this installment was resurrected. German artists Elmgree and Dragset built the installation as a "pop architectural land art project", designed to weather the elements and serve as a sort of fashion time capsule. but without much of a plan for longevity. I read that although the building has proper structural support the building materials are all environmentally friendly and biodegradable, and will allow the structure to eventually "melt" into the surrounding landscape with time. I would love to roadtrip and see this lonely, and extremely random ode to fashion before it's too late. Anyone own an RV? Or maybe I'll just have one shipped from Snail Trail across the pond.
