For your weekend viewing pleasure, I bring you some images of sky walks that are incredibly frightening and also strangely beautiful. Anyone notice that the tourists are all wearing more or less the same thing? See for yourself… I’m not sure what to think of the images of these structures.
Are they for tourist promotions or are they meant to make me feel acrophobic? Visually, they are an interesting way to incorporate public art into an experience. You don’t just look at these sculptures you interact with them and leave having received something from them. The question is then do these people experience the sculpture or the location? I wish I could conduct a poll of all the people leaving these places and see if they’re actually thinking critically about the idea of “space” or whether they are only looking for another postcard photo opportunity.
1. Grand Canyon, Arizona, US
2. Aurland Lookout, Aurland, Norway
3. Trol, Iceland
4. Meran, Italy
I wish I could understand the website I got these from. I think it is in Norwegian.
Either way, these photos get a reaction…which is rare and worth at least a discussion.
Enjoy your weekend!
