A message to whoever left a collection of furniture on the saddle of Bernal Hill, in the area beneath the Vista Pointe chairlift:
If these items were placed on Bernal Hill as part of an in situ art installation intended to provoke wonder and an attenuated appreciation of place, then bravo and well done! The plan is working brilliantly, and we assume you will arrange to remove the items promptly and completely.
However, if you hauled all that furniture up there as props for a video or some such, and then left the stuff after you were finished, then you are a jerk and an illegal dumper, and you must now live with this sad knowledge about your true nature for the remainder of your days.
In the meantime, Neighbor Frank returned from a visit to the hill a few minutes ago, and he shared this photo:
The furniture is still there, and apparently attracting other artists. This photographer and model told me that they did not carry the chair there. The model hoped that the chair didn’t have bedbugs. The ottoman and two footstools were moved to the west. I didn’t see the black chair.
UPDATE: In the comments, several neighbors report that the chairs were used during a “hipster picnic” that took place on Sunday. After the picnic, the chairs were abandoned. So there’s the answer: Not art, but hipster a**holes.
