I mentioned before the beginning of the month that I was having a bad spell. I wrote a post about it over at the other blog and posted it yesterday.
This past summer there have been installations put up in at least a couple of locations in the city, mixing together benches, floral beds, and even art. This first one is in the Glebe.
This one is in Chinatown.
What a wonderful idea that can lead to other great ideas like, sitting and talking to your neighbors and pride in your neighborhood.ReplyDelete
I like them both very much William, the first a wee bit more because of the open design.ReplyDelete
They look very nice, I like the idea.ReplyDelete
those are pretty neat.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry (don't know why) but this kind of "art" does nothing for me. I'd rather just go inside a furniture store or a nursery, or ... :)ReplyDelete
I like these furniture especially if they are decorated with plants and flowers. Nice place to sit and enjoy the view.ReplyDelete
It's new and different. I'm not sure how it fits in with the general vicinity.ReplyDelete
It is unique and interesting!ReplyDelete
@Parsnip: the one in the Glebe seems particularly well used.ReplyDelete
@Grace: that one works best for me as well.
@Marleen: it's a bit experimental, but I thought it was a good idea.
@Tex: I wonder if they'll be staying in place over the winter.
@Lowell: it's possible that something like this elicits a "I like it" or "I don't like it" reaction, with little in between.
@Nancy: that's true.
@Red: I think the concept was a good idea.
@Linda: that it is.
What an interesting and beautiful concept. That is certainly something that makes a positive impact.ReplyDelete
Unusual, for sure. I appreciate all art for the mind of the artist.ReplyDelete
They look nice and maybe people will take a liking to them. Trying different ideas are great for the community and these type of projects don't cost millions of dollars :)ReplyDelete
I like the idea of "public furniture". Going to see what your bad week was about...ReplyDelete
Very smart and nicely done.ReplyDelete
I wish we had something like this here....ReplyDelete
They make for a nice spot to rest for a bit!ReplyDelete
Hope you are feeling up again soon, William. It is rough.
That second one appears to be what the French call a pissoire!ReplyDelete
It is a lovely way of decorating temporary structures.ReplyDelete
Someone with pretty decent carpentry skills put these together.ReplyDelete
@Sharon: I think it brightens up a spot.ReplyDelete
@Linda: I do too.
@Bill: I shouldn't think so. At least this isn't like the hockey sticks-badminton rackets that look like a Quidditch pitch debacle that still stands in a city park.
@Halcyon: thanks for stopping in.
@Gunn: they do seem to stand out.
@Norma: it was a good idea, I think.
@RedPat: I'm getting better. One day at a time.
@Catalyst: I hadn't thought of that!
@Denise: it is. We'll see if they're temporary, but I expect they'll probably be moved indoors for the winter, and if they come back in spring, then it's meant to be permanent.
Yes, I saw that about indoors. Your winter weather can be a bit severe for socializing outside then. Lovely concept.ReplyDelete
That looks like a great idea and very appealing execution. Headed to your other blog for an update...ReplyDelete
Well done, dude. I find daily blogging helps my depression. My issues surround losing my parents, career, home, friends, etc. Great photos!ReplyDelete
diamonds & flowers. ( ;ReplyDelete
@Mari: I haven't seen these moved indoors yet. I wonder if they'll stay outdoors over the winter.ReplyDelete
@Jennifer: I can say that writing that helped.
@Beth: yes indeed.
