Unnoticed objects in public places.

Sil Krol, an interesting artist from the Netherlands places "familiar" abjects in public places and the public ignores them:
"Because of the growing individualism and the abundance of objects, advertisements and other visual structures in public space, people are less conscious of their surroundings and what's actualy in there. When I install a wooden imitation of an archetype electricity box, there was nobody (except some dog) that noticed this sudden appearance. It's located on a vacant lot near the Zuidas, the major business destrict of Amsterdam. Until now, the sculpture hasn't been removed."
