Baby Infestation - Prague (Spring 2003)


Prague has a rather large telecommunications tower built in one corner of the city, which is easily seen from all other corners, it would seem. It's a bit of a monstrosity, and is known by several not-so-nice nicknames, which I'll not mention here. I liked to call it the missile silo, although I don't think the name has stuck anywhere aside from my own rather pointy head (my head's not really pointy).

At any rate, there was an artist, David Cerny, who felt that this tower had a fever and the only prescription was more babies. So, monstrous babies and more monstrous babies were placed in all sorts of crawling configurations up and down its sides. I assume the fever has subsided by now, but the babies remain.

The computer babies must have been an inspiration. Right now, Prague is experiencing a serious baby boom-they're populating this country with a vengence.

They were having to do all kinds of public service announcements when I was there about the importance of getting pregnant. The population was beginning to dwindle so much that they were afraid that Czechs would become extinct.

Whose to say that PSA's never have an impact?

This example could be used in a statistic.
