Day 52: Franz West

What do I have for you today?

A sculpture.

This piece of art is called 'The Ego and the Id' by Franz West, an Austrian artist. It was on display in New York at the Doris C. Freedom Plaza (edge of Central Park), where public art has been shown since the 80s. So, millions of people walk past this spot everyday. Cool, huh.

Well, what do you think? Do you like it? Is is beautiful, fun, strange, ugly, pointless? What does it remind you of? Everyone has an opinion about art and I think it's an important thing to discuss. Getting other people's opinions can extend you own.

So, why not write a comment. What do you think? Does it inspire you? How? Why not?

I guess the real question is, which is Id and which is Ego? Do you think these names are significant?

Questions, questions, so many questions...have a think.
