Pimp my satellite dish

Who said satellite dishes in urban neighborhoods had to be an eyesore? Boing Boing points to a photo from Fox News that will change the way you think about satellite TV:

“A man watches from a balcony as satellite dishes are seen on buildings

in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The project to ‘pimp’ the dishes is an

initiative of a Dutch artist working with school children in an area of

the city referred to as ‘satellite city,’ inhabited predominantly by

first and second generation immigrants. The hooks on the roof are used

all over the city to move furniture in and out of apartments using a

rope and pulley, as the staircases are narrow.”

Not only are these Dutch immigrants innovative in the way that they move furniture in and out of buildings, they also have an eye for design!
