No art, but plenty of frost!

Traffic was too busy for me to stop and photograph much of Canberra's objets d'art but I did snap this one of Danish sculptor Keld Moseholm’s “On the Staircase”, 2005. It was installed (“launched”) in 2009, having been bought, sadly, on a shopping spree at Sydney’s Sculpture by the Sea. But look closely…

Someone has stolen the smallest figure! The artists' concept was 'as i read and climb the stairs of knowledge I get smaller!

The official line is:
"..... artsACT is ..... in the process of organising a replacement little man for ‘On the Staircase’ in Petrie Plaza. While the artist has been fabricating the new little man, we have been organising security lighting for the work. artsACT has also been working with the artist and a local artist/fabricator to ensure that when the replacement little man is re-installed he is permanently secured. ....."

But, it was still cold this morning.

Frost at the Mugga Way as Canberra hit minus five degrees. Those really keen people were out and about doing their exercise routines by Lake Burley Griffin.
