A sculptor’s view of public art. Because it’s just an owl right?

By johnboy - 18 September 2012 3

owl meets circle

Behold the work of “Some awesome chick with mad photoshop skills who despite being a budding sculptor has little regard for the sanctity of public art” as she has chosen to be known.

Who would have thought a dream lens for the future and an owl could be so inspirational?

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with with world? Email it in to images@the-riotact.com .

A giant know-all phallus screwing the future, yep, that’s Canberra all right!

How nice to have our metaphorical rogering commemorated as a virtual post card, I had so nearly doublethinked it out of my memory too.

I love how the artist has left the photoshop job half done, like the image was too disgustingly accurate to finish. It is as if her hand faltered on the freehand selection tool, paralysed with a sudden existential dread and sober pessimism. The image is left messy and rushed, like the bloated politicians shoved head first into what was once our future.
