Doggy Poop Sparks Up Power Lights in Cambridge
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — It stinks and it’s a hazard to walkers everywhere, but it turns out dog poop has a bright side.
Dog poop is lighting a lantern at a Cambridge dog park as part of a months long project that its creator, artist Matthew Mazzotta, hopes will get people thinking about not wasting waste.
The “Park Spark” poop converter is actually two steel, 500-gallon oil tanks painted a golden yellow, connected by diagonal black piping and attached to an old gaslight-style street lantern at the Pacific Street Park.
