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

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

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.

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.
