Turning The Place Over
The city of Liverpool (UK) has a new public artwork, called "Turning The Place Over".
Sculptor Richard Wilson has cut out an egg-shaped section of the former Yates’s Wine Lodge building’s front and fixed it to a giant pivot. This artwork will be launched on June 20 and will run until the end of 2008. It is costing £450,000 (approx. $939,048 Cdn). The Culture Company believes “this astonishing feat of engineering will stun audiences. Passers-by will have a thrilling experience as the building rotates above them”.
Personally... I think this is just a waste of money... That money can be put to a better use (e.g. save environment, charity, etc.)...
Well... May be I am just not artistic enough...
City’s new room with a view... but is it art?
