British street artist Banksy continues his “artist residency on the streets of New York” with his latest public display appearing in the Coney Island neighborhood of Brooklyn. The image depicts a surprised robot spray painting a barcode on a brick wall as a pigeon flies above. Though no commentary was supplied in conjunction with this piece, some have noticed that the numbers “132741” under the barcode correspond to a color code for a dark shade of blue – a blue that resembles the one worn by the NYPD. Could it be a jab at New York’s finest or maybe just a look at the notion of consumerism? Now in the last week of his month-long series, we’re anxious to see how it will all come to an end.
