Public Art

I've only taken two photos all week!  And neither was of art.  I think I better go take my temperature - maybe I'm not well!

I've found a few in the archives that I think fit this week's topic, Public Art.  I've posted some of them before and have chosen them this time because each is made from a different material to resemble things that are typically Northland.

 Concrete seabirds

 Aluminium bush canopy

 Poles, steel and rope eel trap

A kauri moth (I think)

And now I'm going a bit random, believing that art is in the eye of the beholder.

 

I'll stop now before I get carried away and go see what public art the rest of the Friday Shoot Out team has found to show us.  They will be here

  1. I found that I have done local art before with different themes and most of mine came from my archives. Very modern work there. The eel trap is quite interesting. I agree about art in the eye of the beholder. That is nature at it's best.

  2. I love public art. I'm also glad that you recognized the spinder web as "art" and gave it credit for it's creativity. I think it's beautiful.

  5. Hi, Pauline - I love the fact that you included public artwork done by caterpillars. And I'l love to jump into the eel trap and climb around. Fun sculpture.

  6. Public art is often such a controversial topic - people have strong opinions. In the end, I'm usually appreciative of most - even the stuff I don't 'get'. Like you, though, sometimes I find art in places that are completely random.
