this one really freaked me out, and got my attention ( I am, of course, referring to the creepy stalker breath chandelier, not the beautiful, yet unknown trees whos pictures I am also including in this post.) The name of this piece is “untitled”, and I had NO idea it made creepy heavy breathing sounds when you walk underneath it.
So as I was trying to get a decent picture of it, I tensed up frowned, and got ready to try and beat the crap out of a creepy stalker. Luckily for me, it was the chandelier, as I would have probably be on the losing end, and the police would have been involved, but trust me, I was totally ready to lay the smack down *cough*
Anyway it was created by an artist from Austria named Werner Reiterer, as previously stated, it is a large chandelier, that apparently lights up. during the day, it breathes in, and during the night, it breathes out.
I am not entirely sure what the artist is trying to say…. Maybe something about safety in urban areas, maybe how innocent noise can be precieved as threatening, or maybe he just wanted to scare the crap out of some people. I don’t know.
OH LOOK MORE SCULPTURES!
I really really loved this bronze fish statue McCormick & Schmick’s, but as far as I can tell, this is a very very fancy sign for a fancy fish restaurant. Other than proclaiming “FISH MAY BE EATEN HERE” I can’t really see any higher meaning behind it. Although, if the point is to attract interested customers, I suppose it works pretty well
I did not enjoy plaster all that much. It got underneath my fingernails and refused to come out. I also had some issues with the thickness of the plaster…… That being said, I’m reasonably happy with it. I might sand it later on, or paint it.
photos of sculptures from Cincinnati. more to come
So the sculpture used to be know as the Tyler Davidson Fountain (As Henry Probasco has it built in memory of his late brother in law) and shows the various blessings of water (the woman on top is apparently the representation of water in this case, and the people below are it’s various uses) Also, the small children murdering various wildlife are actually fountains, which you can drink out of (supposedly the water isn’t chlorinated but I don’t want to find out.) there’s also a rumor that it was built on an indian mound but I can’t validate that.
