"Food For Thought"

According to the Nelson Public Art & Sculpture Walks brochure, this stainless steal work was created by Nelson sculptor Grant Scott. It was installed at the Collingwood Street Fresh Choice supermarket car park in 2005.

  1. Strange sculpture! Makes me think of those giant tube worms that live at the geothermal vents. Now there's some diversity for you!

  2. Maybe because it's right in front of a supermarket... But did you ever do science projects with molds? These babies remind me of them babies.

  3. "Food for Thought" is the actual title of this sculpture.
    To me, it is still a puzzle.

  4. When you look at them closeley, do the various pieces represent anything? Food for thought, I don't know, but they sure are great conversation starters! Thanks for the shot, I like the colourful elements at the back too!

  7. I wondered about the "what are they supposed to be" question too. They looked kind of organic/mushroomy to me. You're lucky to find such a brochure. Haven't found anything like that here.

  8. I think good thing about this sculpture is people to think.
    I still can not connect this object to its title.
    It could be some plants growing from seed? Mushroom? May be anything bust still I can not...

  9. I LOVE these sculptures! I'd like a mess of them in my garden. The ball shooting forth with the expanding tail behind might be a comet, or the momentum of a good idea or philosophy. Good stuff! I'll take five.

  10. The momentum of a good idea of philosophy? Hummm, you are a cup-is-half-full kinda gal, aren't you, Phlegmfatale? And I do love you for that!

  11. Well, megpie, it is half-full most of the time, but sometimes it's half-full of phlegm or bile. *giggle* Love ya back.
