i know i’m like, a year late on this but i was walking down union square west yesterday afternoon and happened to look up at a water tower (dave and i had been discussing the purpose of water towers recently. [they pressurize the water supply in the buildings below them, in case you were interested]) and my eyes drifted higher and to the left and — oh my GOD, don’t jump!, i thought.
i then realized i spotted one of 31 cast-iron male sculptures installed on various dangerous ledges all around manhattan, created by british artist antony gormley.
oh, provocative art. how you shock and confound me every time.
