Public art, public spaces

In my previous post, JR mentioned in the comments that there is a new sculpture up at the 'Tute that looks really cool in the dark. I have to be honest: at first, I really didn't like this sculpture. It gave me the creeps.
But then I saw it lit up at night, and I finally started to see the beauty in it.
And then the snow came, and I really started to love it. See if you agree...

During the daytime:
The Alchemist by Jaume Plensa   (in snow)

At night:
The Alchemist by Jaume Plensa (in snow)

The piece is called "The Alchemist", and it is by Jaume Plensa. My changing reaction says a lot to me about how art can be influenced by its surroundings. It will be interesting to see what I think in the spring when everything is really green.
