Random mutterings, observations, and comments on what ever comes to mind. Photos will be posted.
Thanks for posting this image. I hope you noticed how the face follows you as you walk past it from the opposite side. It a strange 3-D illusion that I didn't expect.
Nikosculpture, I really love this work, and was just blown away by it when I saw it. It is light hearted and humorous while still being an impressive piece of sculpture. I did notice that the eyes follow was you walk past, and thought that was all by design and intent. I shot a number of pictures, and liked this one best.
Looks like a Woody Allen character.
Had not thought of that, but your are right. It does.
I like it. It's fun and funky.
I like it, too. And I like this town, wherever it is, for displaying art in public spaces. What town is it?
This is Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Who would have thought this place is turning into a mecca of culture and sophistication. The city sponsors this rotating sculpture show.
It's now in Edina, MN.
Nice how in this frame the circle of the sculpture corresponds in color and form with the water installation things in the lower left corner. Like an echo.
Hello Martina. I shot a number of photos of this piece, and picked this one for the reasons you list above. Also liked the widow in the background and the red alarm. If you look very closely, I'm reflected in the window wearing a red hat.
Aaaaaah, the red hat is the fire alarm's echo. And there is a woman with a red t-shirt, too, in the reflection. Almost the same red like in the pedestal ... :-D - cool!
You did take a close look. Thanks for the straight line. The punch line, "That's no women, that's my wife." (An old joke, but keep smiling!)The sculpture pedestals are interesting. Supplied by the city, they are Sioux quartzite, a local red stone, blocks topped by heavy plate steel painted that pink color.
