Kanagroos in Flight

By 20 May 2014 6

Snapped these new art sculptures out at the Canberra International Airport right next to the runway. Through some investigation the airport informed me that “Roos” is the latest sculpture from sculptor Jeff Thomson. It is the 14th installation overall through the airports commitment to public art.

Where exactly are these positioned? They don’t appear to be in a very admiration-friendly location…

So on a gloomy foggy morning they look like real roos and the unwary pilot will report them to the tower?
Are those statues of kangaroos still sitting by the roadside in Gungahlin? What a f#%ked up thing to put next to a road…

You’re right. We should put them on the side of an 80/90km/h road where it’s illegal to stop.

I dream of a Canberra where, one day, that will no longer be the best option we can come up with…
