Tough crowds

Anissa Mack has built a little cottage in front of the Brooklyn (New York) Public Library. Four days a week (according to an article in the New York Times, and another in the Washington Post), she goes there to bake apple pies, which she then leaves on a window sill, to cool.

Then the artist becomes the spectator, and the good people of Brooklyn perform for her:

"[One Saturday,] an adult man ran across the plaza and stole the pie, right in front of a bunch of little kids who were waiting, and ran off," Ms. Mack said. "That was pretty satisfying, to get it the way I wanted it."

She's a pretty tough critic, too, it seems.

She did this a couple years ago in the student union at U. Nebraska. It's really quite wonderful how confused people get by it.
