Cityscape

The cityscape installation is now open and there are some lovely seats as well as a sub-IKEA wooden bench around the exterior. It is a wonderful intrusion into an old city and there's a lovely smell of fresh wood in the air.

I was photographing it for an article in the next issue of Upfront and one of the most interesting aspects was watching people's reactions, I even saw two people bump into each other because they were startled by the installation. Also I noticed how much people enjoyed it, the smiles, the gestures and how comfortable people felt around the sculpture.

Now I have to go and see it under different lights and in the evening. It's a lovely experience. Take a book or an ipod and just enjoy sitting around this imaginative and impressive artwork.
