Fluorescent zip ties turn NYC poles into art
NEW YORK (WABC) -- A colorful art installation is growing in parts of Lower Manhattan.
Artists use thousands of fluorescent-colored zip ties to turn everyday objects like lampposts into something vibrant and interesting to look at.
"We chose cable ties because they are a common every day item. We wanted to sort of show people that it doesn't take a lot of money, education or resources to make art. And that creativity is something that everybody is capable of," Preston Dane from Animus Arts Collective said.
Zip ties are typically used to bundle things like cables.
