Last year there was a rash of store closings in my part of the country. They were dropping like flies! It was scary. First was Circuit City, then Linens and Things and then World Market. (I loved World Market.) It settled down over the summer, and I thought I wouldn't lose any more of my go-to stores. Within the last month or so, things started to take another ominous turn.

"Encastrable is a series of guerrilla art residencies held inside gardening and DIY megastores in the Paris area... At no cost at all, the young artists have at their disposal a huge array of material that they can grab, move, superimpose, and organize onto temporary installations and sculptures. Authorization of the manager of the establishment is obviously never requested."
