Over the wall:
"Something there is that does not love a wall...
That wants it down..."

—Robert Frost, Mending Wall

An anonymous collective of California artists has begun doing art interventions into gated communities. Heavy Trash has installed three garish orange "viewing platforms" near walls that surround three LA gated communities to raise awareness of America's fastest-growing form of housing. While these communities are intended to wall out the riff-raff and keep its soft, wealthy innards safe, the platforms effectively turn its dwellers into zoo critters! (Via BoingBoing.)
