Recently I was in Perth, Australia and this neon green piece of public art caught my eye. It's an homage to our stately Arizona saguaro cactus for sure! Titled "Situate" this piece was created by sculptor James Angus as a playful piece to tie together the old and new elements of Perth's downtown area (called Forrest Place). The piece seems to shape shift depending on the position of sun and shadows. It is huge and gorgeous and fun! And come on now.... doesn't it look like a stand of saguaros?
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
