There's often a lot of exhibits to which my reaction is 'what's that?' or 'is it the right way up?' but a lot of this year's were appealing in a variety of ways.
First up, a couple of 'practical' pieces - a pavilion to sit in and maybe admire your garden...
|Pavilion by Thomas Heatherwick|
|Sitting on History 1 by Bill Woodrow|
and a seat entitled Sitting on History, to sit on and read
there were some weird cartoony things that really aren't my style of thing at all
|Spiral of the galaxy by Marc Quinn|
and a giant sea shell
|Declination by Tony Cragg|
|Tongue in Cheek, again by Tony Cragg|
|untitled by Bosco Sodi|
|The Lens by Unus Safardiar|
|Femme Assise, Mains Croisees by Baltasar Lobo|
|alien by David Breuer-Weil|
|Dos Figuras con mano en el peche by Juan Munoz|
|Standing Woman by Fernando Botero|
|Cyclone Twist by Alice Aycock|
and my favourite - Marianna
|Marianna by Jaume Plensa|
a seemingly 3D piece that viewed 'end-on' becomes almost 2D
Isn't that wonderful?
