In Images – Cabin Fever

Touring La Jolla recently. The sunshine and ocean air were wonderfully fortifying after a week spent inside, coping with whatever virus hit me hard recently.

(A few braving the ocean – the sunshine was warming for both body and spirit; the water – I’d imagine – not so much)

  1. There is a display of that exact same magnitude and man (complete with singing arm hammer) here in Switzerland – I believe it’s in Basel. I have no idea what the significance is or if the artist set them up all over the world, but now I am motivated to find out.

  2. 🙂 Singing would be even better. He does move continuously, although I have no idea what the power source is (I think it would be cool if it was solar, but I have no clue)… It always reminds me of an Ayn Rand novel (which is rather unfortunate), but the scale is impressive…

  3. I saw those sculptures in Dallas, too. I want to say it was at the mall, which sounds weird, but there it is.
