Hey there Folks - update on the 'Trillian' Sculpture, (42 meters wide by 45 meters high Baby); Listener Alan sent in this pic of the Sculpture Site as it is currently:
"Finally got a shot of Broadway roundabout - and there's already a huge sculpture sitting in the middle of it. Northern Ireland Electricity have beaten Belfast City Council to it - there's a electricity pylon surrounded overgrown with trees and bushes, and surrounded by circling cars and lorries. So one piece of art will have to be destroyed to allow the wild bloom structure known as "Trillian" to be erected in 2008!"
So...one piece of 'Site Specific' work will have to be destroyed to make way for another...interesting. Check out the links below for further info - and notice how 'Trillian' Artist Ed Carpenter displays his name on his website. If the animation doesn't work in your browser click here to see; we gotta interview this guy for our show!
