Airport Art


This is part of the artpiece that greets you at the Sydney International Airport terminal. Nothing like a warm "welcome to Australia!".

Hey Lish. Indeed, it struck me as very peculiar...

Is that supposed to look like the hills that termites build?

Together with the fence behind it, it looks almost Japanese to me.

It seems modern artists think that art, people enjoy to see, has already been created by ancient Greeks and Romans. Now they goal is to confuse and distract the watchers.
Another possible explanation is - there were always more unsuccessful attempts than successful ones. So we have to watch "the contemporary art", some pieces of which become "classics" and others just disappear.
And thank you for your blog I really enjoy!

I saw this but too but didn't have my camera with me at the time. I think it is a nice piece of artwork but the parking hassles at the terminal deter me from returning just for a shot of it. You were fortunate to get such good light for your photo.
