The Skywhale by Patricia Piccinini
I was rather excited last night to read that Patricia Piccinini's sky sculpture, 'The Skywhale' was coming to Brisbane. With no time to dally, I took an early morning drive into the Brisbane Powerhouse to see it being inflated in brilliant sunlight.
It really is an awesome sight to see in the flesh, transformed by hot air into a majestic form. I marvel at Patricia's creativity, the attention to detail and mild humour. I can also contemplate the logistics of realising a project like this, the hours of work invested.
If you have an opportunity to check it out the details for viewing today till Friday are on the Brisbane Powerhouse site.
Congratulations Patricia, its a fabulous work!
