On a recent trip to New York I found several cases of vinyl abuse. I don't know what urges people to turn records into clocks to hang on the wall, ashtrays and fruit bowls.
These victims were found on the Brooklyn flea market. New York does not seem to have a big flea market culture but they sure like to mess around with those records.

Since I am a big fan of 7" vinyl the next example was even worse to see. This was in the museum store of the Brooklyn museum. This exhibit must have taken a long time to complete as you had to piece the singles together around the mirror. This leaves little space for the actual mirrow and makes it pretty useless. Like the mirror is just a cheap excuse to mess around with the dead records.

Hi Flo, you can find those Vinyl artefacts also at the Wohlwillstr. in St. Pauli.
Some small shop had them in the windowshop last year.
Hamburg is avantgarde!
