I also have lots of papers, presentations, portfolios and projects due right around now. But I've gotten so much done in last two days that I thought I would take a second and show this cool installation that I hope to see when I go to Vancouver for the Olympics in February! Getting very excited about that by the way. Can't really believe how soon it is. This blog post tells a little bit about it, but its somewhat unclear. Anyway, these pictures show it still in protective wrap. It just arrived in Vanier Park, Vancouver from China. I'm assuming it will be unveiled in time for the Olympics. Its described as "Seriously jaw-droppingly amazing 90′ long silver sculpture that looks like a giant mercury splash imitating the wings of a gull seen through rain streaked glass."
The artist's name is Jun Ren, whose website appears to not be working. Anyway, this looks cool already, I can't wait to see what it actually looks like!
