Fakes

A brown vinyl bag, branded by hand in white paint, and artfully abandoned outside Ausscrap. Situationist art with ironic detournement and a touch of social statement.


Name of a house in south Newtown. Hopeful, yet humble.

What do you mean, 'fake' - With the name painted (not printed) on, it's an LV original!

And you just left it there!?

Graceland II?

I think there's another Graceland in (not very south) Newtown. Unless I never noticed the II.

I actually did think about taking the bag. It was pretty cool. But I felt it shouldn't be disturbed. And then someone else took it anyway.

Graceland II is in the vicinity of the Chocolate Dog Cafe. I'd love to know if there is another one! (other than the one in Memphis, Tennessee).

I'm actually collecting house names at the moment, so send in any good ones.

There is a big terrace at the Easternn end of Cleveland St called Graceland. One of the best share houses I ever lived in.
