Day 329 - Shiny Art
In Montreal today giving a SMARTboard workshop at the Palais des Congres in Montreal. Each time I'm in the building I admire the piece of art hanging in the lobby near the escalators. To be honest, I've never taken the time to look up the name of the art piece or its artist. The piece consists of little metal pieces, slighty bent, hanging from the ceiling. When you see it as a whole it looks like a flock of shiny birds. I was kind of in a rush so I didn't take off my zoom lens to get that shot. Guess I'll need to do that next time I visit. I'll have to take the time to find out more about the art piece as well. Anyway, I really like this piece because of its shininess as well as the colours reflected in the metal. The lines in various directions give the feeling of movement. For me it shows how a very simple concept can be beautiful.
