inside the Snake (Again)



Its the Rattesnake Bridge on a fine fall evening. Couldn't stay for the sunset unfortunately. For those who didn't see my previous entry, this is a predestrian/bike way shaped like a rattlesnake. It even has a tail that rattles!

I'm sorry, I don't know how to do a direct link; however there is more on this on May 5-7 of this blog.

Great way to make something as commonplace as a pedestrian overpassing seem exotic and exciting!

That was a very creative idea, wasn't it! This bridge would certainly invite me to walk across it, at sunset or anytime.

I really like it. Some people hate it. The artist who designed it said he would never do another public art project because he got so much hostility over this one. Maybe some of the people who hate it need to walk through it. I already liked it the first time I visited but its really special when you walk thru. Public art should allow itself a sense of humor and of wonder.

I'm feeling plenty embarassed about the 'stone shorts' (in Santiago de Chile a few days back) so here's my gift to you, not that you did anything wrong, Louz! And for the record, I hate snakes, and I hated them almost as badly as jmping cactus, but I'll try almost any bridge once.
May 5 top, May 5 bottom, May 6, and May 7.

Thanks for visiting guys! What it comes down to for me is there is still hope for us all if there is public art being created and funded that is not homogenized and made safe by committees and big corporate donors.
