I really like this. It's eyecatching and elegant...I'd be interested in seeing how it fits into the wall.
The poem's good too..

This is a very striking installation.

I think I'd do a double take if I see an installation like that. 'What's that guy doing up there? That's dangerous!' Very striking.

I must say that I love the stone wall.

I think it's fantastic having water running on the instalation! I allways like to see that element associated with art.

This shot is outstanding, Wayne. I love the sculpture and the poem. Vancouver is so cool.

I'm so near-sighted, I would have thought that was a real person. Very clever!

He looks like he was an over-enthusiastic allegiance-pledger there, poor guy. But I do like the whole effect.
