I wonder what these mannequins are thinking? Do they want to be rescued like the beautiful Teenar, Girl Guitar was? Would they like to be converted into art now that they are old and abandoned? Would they like to become musical instruments?
Marcel Duchamp, king of Dada and Surrealism said it best:
"The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the art in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting it's inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act" (Marcel Duchamp)
