Too bad that joke only works about 1/3 of the days here.

Or 2/3 of the days, depending on how you take it.

How does it have two shadows?

If it's the sharply angled shadow that's fake, I can't really tell what it's supposed to be a shadow of.

In any care: cool bike hitching post.

God, our sidewalks get disgusting when it stops raining for a few months.

#8 I thought all that gum & and other disgusting junk were part of the artwork. This disappoints me to realize what a bunch of slobs people are.

oh, I DE-spise those things! They only accommodate two bikes, and they're awkward: the little holes make me scrape my knuckles when I lock my bike up. Bike racks should ALWAYS be standard u-shaped thingies. And this should always be the rule everywhere: Function comes first; form second.

Those bike racks were installed starting in 2004 when SDOT began removing parking meters and replacing them with pay stations. You're just now noticing them?

If there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from.

I call shenanigans. Two shadows. Obv. Photoshop® involved.

Vashta Nerada infestation. Do NOT attempt to lock your bike there.

I think both shadows are painted on the sidewalk, and that's part of the 'art', but not being there in person, I cannot verify.
Shadows in Seattle?! Puleeze- it never happens.

@11, I agree: they're awful to lock bikes to.

@11: not only are they worthless for locking a bike to, but they can be easily dismantled and your bike can be stolen even if you do manage to lock one to them (round part can be unbolted and slid up and off).

@17:
I think the short one is painted, the long one is real.
If you look closely at the upright pole, it glistens a bit on the right side in the sun light.
