Sculptures by the Sea - 2008

I know this is rather late, but I can record at least a couple of items that struck me in last November's exhibition of sculptures placed on the walk between Tamarama Beach and Bronte Beach.

First up is the one that made the biggest impression on me. I liked its strength, and its unexpectedness.

Interface by Michael Lipman

"my aim is to create the interface between the ocean and man. The ocean is turning back the iron road as its force cannot be controlled."

My wife's vote (and my next favourite):

Mongrel country - nil tenure by Amanda Stuart

My six-year-old son's vote: Poroplastic 2 [an exploded motorcycle] by Richard Goodwin

My seven-year-old daughter's favourite:

Humpback gunship by Benjamin Gilbert
