It Will Cost You [VIDEO]

This piece is brilliant but evokes sadness for a future that may yet come to pass.

Fabian Brunsing’s public art installation “Pay & Sit: The Private Bench” imagines a dystopian tomorrow in which even the most quotidian of conveniences — resting a moment on a park bench — have become soulless objects of enterprise.  (from The Daily What via Andrew Sullivan)

Here in Sweden, such conveniences have already been monetized: at the Stockholm and Göteborg train stations, access to individual restrooms requires depositing 10 kr into the coin slot.
