Elim Street Cat Lady is Watching You

The sight above is a fairly unsettling piece of wheat-pasted public art as seen on 1st Street by Elim, South of Market. I actually find the ubiquitous closed-circuit camera on the right more disturbing than the woman's expression. Between her circumstance, the passive cat, and the surveillance the scene comes off as both voyeuristic and oppressive. In other words, a fine reflection of the times.
