The long tail

I spotted this store the other day.  It’s in a reasonably prominent retail location (at least if you catch public transport in Auckland).  And it seems to deal entirely in canine-themed art.  Sculpture, portraiture, even a doggy still life, all celebrating  man’s best friend.

Now that, surely, is the very definition of niche artistic interest.  And proof that the long tail exists (pun intended).

    I find myself walking past this place a lot, and it always far busier than any other gallery in town, packed with people stroking their chins and looking thoughtfully at these pictures of dogs water-skiing.

    Surely it’s some sort of performance work? It just can’t be what it looks like, it’s too perfect.
