Faking It

by  Mark Kurlyandchik

Just across the entrance to Belle Isle, a pleasant breeze blows through the old car-charging station that houses Prop Art Studio, cooling an employee whos busily making cupcakes. But the wafts dont carry the expected sweet aroma of cake batter. Instead, the place just smells like Styrofoam.

Thats because Prop Art Studio doesnt make cupcakes  at least not the confections that you guiltily devour with a cold glass of milk. In fact, they dont really make anything that is what it appears. That Ford Edge that was perched atop all those billboards last year  well, it wasnt a real vehicle. It was a lightweight, full-size Styrofoam model made by Prop Art.
