Dinking As Modern Art
Good lookin' Melbourne hipsters who weren't at the fashion festival were doing blockies at a an art launch/installation thing last night.
Local artist, Lane Cormick gave many of his fancy dressed mates dinks around the block. In a room upstairs from where this photo was taken was a scrawled note of explanation.
Something about how when he was a young roustabout, he would hear local folklore about an older hoodlum who dared to ride his unregistered trail bike into Melbourne's CBD.
After so many years, last night was Cormick's chance recreate the legend by giving his mates illegal dinks around the city streets.
And he did so without being caught by the fuzz!
