Canberra - "Droplet" at Woden
Australia

A sculpture located on the corner of Furzer and Worgan Sts in Phillip, is called Droplet (source: The Canberra Times). This piece of public art has however been referred to by lots of other names - the lemon juicer, the tear of the taxpayer, pear of agony and the buttplug (source: the-riotact.com).

But to me this lemon-juicing buttplug looks more like an intergalactic rescue pod. It's waiting for some alien to push the right buttons to open its secret door and when occupied, it'll take off to outer space silently, leaving us the teary-eyed taxpayer to fork out even more money to put another piece of public art in its place. The question is: who is this meant to rescue?

The sculpture is lit up in blue and looks pretty at night but unfortunately it is hopelessly out-illuminated by the building just opposite.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
