David Jensz sculpture Life Cycle has finally had the fences around it on Bunda St removed.

Those of you with a passing interest in four dimensional geometry will no doubt get the joke.

What’s Your opinion?

Funny I thought it looked like a cyclist (the enviroment) being taken out by a fourwheel drive (big industry) and ending up in a coffin…..pointy things just there for interest…..but then again I failed art in high school, and I dont get blue poles.

While I don’t object to this particular piece of art, I do object to paying for it without having any say in the matter

Waht do you suggest? A plebiscite for every piece of public art? What a top idea…

How about a plebiscite on public art funding?

Not too much to ask of our socialist overlords is it?

Meanwhile just down the road next to the shiny cone things outside Tongue n Groove

Walking past them the other day when the window washers were cleaning the building I wondered what they thought of a nice sharp thing being below them as they rappel down the building.

well, you do get to vote, so you could make it a priority to seek the assurance of the candidate of your choice to hold similar tastes to you when they authorise public art…

And I do vote, but finding candidates in the ACT whose views are in any way similar to mine is difficult. It’s more a matter of choosing the least bad candidate than of choosing the best.

planning regulations about using 4 dimensional space in Civic

Yes, owing to competing space requirements, all three-dimensional structures in Civic are now required to exist in this timeline for no more than 6 weeks, before blinking out of existence so other buildings and amenities can be brought in to their place on the temporal axis.

And we paid for this alleged “art”, how much exactly?

Philistine’s philistine. What a monotonous world you would choose to inhabit.

Although everyone has the right to like or dislike a work of art, to even suggest that this is not a work of art marks you as a rather introspective insensitive unappreciative dullard. Even those with little appreciation for the efforts of others have to marvel at the amazing execution of this work, I know for a fact that even with all the time in the world I could never accomplish something like this.

Have you even approached it close enough to appreciate it?

+1

Meanwhile just down the road next to the shiny cone things outside Tongue n Groove, I see they’ve upgraded the standard blind person bump strip things to super duper shiny stainless steel ones in keeping with the shiny art pieces 5m away…Yet they only stretch a small portion of the crossing – pity the blind person inconsiderate enough to cross the lane way at the other bit.
