This in from Tiffany:

I took this yesterday on my way up to the mall (sorry about the iPhone quality)

I’m not too sure if I really like it or if its really creepy.

I took a photo of it at lunch the other day too. Personally, I really like it.

[this is my one]

It’s creepy, and in no way assisted in being likeable by the location – graffitied wall, boarded up door, drab building. Probably the worst so far – did no one think of the location? Having said that, no doubt that building is earmarked to become a shiny metal and glass monolith in the near future.

It’s a looming menace…

And I think I like it, but I’ll have to see it myself.

More cack. How much did this “art” cost?

That’s not very original – unless it’s by the same person, it’s just a plagiarism of the “art” outside the Canberra Theatre in City.

Both are by David Jensz – Fractal Weave at the theater and Culture Fragment in Woden. The description of the work is ironic considering the divisiveness of public art

“By weaving the elements of his work together, David explores individual threads that collectively produce a “social fabric”. As a community we are all connected, our sense of separateness is only a question of degree.”

I live fractal weave more but I find his works very tactile

It reminds me of my ex-girlfriend. I’m pretty sure she was related to Medusa.

I assumed David was exploring the dodgy practice of pinching all the copper pipe from the long empty buildings in the background.

On the subject of Alexander and Albermarle Buildings – they are DAs in to replace them with mixed use residential/retail spaces. I am interested to see if the demolition can be completed without squishing this art flat.

It looks like something from a Tool music video (that’s not a bad thing).

both buildings have had DAs for ages…wonder what the hold up is. they haven’t been occupied since early 2010.

It’s just a patch job on the derelict buildings behind.

The police have been using them for training exercises, no idea when that will end.
