Diggin' it

If you happen to find yourself way out in Coney Island this week, make sure you scope the beach (not just the girls and 300-lb. dudes in bikinis): Gelitin, a four-man artist collective hailing from Australia, will be spending all day each day May 7--13 digging a giant hole in Astroland's sands—only to fill it each night. Sound like an exercise in futility? The point of the project, dubbed The Dig Cunt, is to create a public sculpture that's the opposite of phallic (think: Washington Monument). Everyone is welcome to join in the dig. For details, click here.
