Hot with the Chance of a Late Storm

It's been a real scorcher in Sydney today. The temperature nudged 40 degrees this afternoon (that's over 100 for those using the other measurement), so this sculpture by the creative sniffers at The Glue Society has been on my mind.

"Hot with the chance of a late storm" was created for the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition back in November. There is obviously an environmental message in this work, although I do wonder how environmentally friendly the production process was, not to mention the materials used. Let's just say this paradox adds to the power of this work for now.

This piece won the People's Choice prize for the year. The show is staged along Sydney's short Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk, and attracts over 400,000 visitors.
