Hi everyone !For me, the most impressive one is the first one because it creates a surprising view, not according with the landscape all around. I prefer public art which causes surprises and creates a shift with what we are used to see in countryside or cities. In my opinion, art, and especially public art , has to make people think about life in community, how we live our city or countryside, about our society’s project. So, art must break with habits, create new ways of how we understand world around us. Bye.

I think the design of the bench and the combination of materials are very original, but I must admite I don´t understand the function that´s expressed on the glass panel. Can you clear up my doubt, please? Thank you.

I went to England last year, one of important things I discovered that they really pay special attention about their sculpture and definitely history. the more it is ancient the most impressive. you can find lots of them in your country. I interested in tower-shaped sculpture. in my point of view it is attractive and also as you mentioned useful.

I think it's amazing to have something like that. Some all of them really useful and functional and very modern. My favorite is Angel, but I would like to rebuild it!!! I am sorry, but it looks like as something lifeless. Maybe it's so much straight?!

It has been almost a year I gave my English studies up and I stopped writting in this blog, but now my duties let me restart this activity.Of all works of art you showed us, I prefer the two funtional works because I'm a very realistic person, but I like beautiful funtional things. When I saw the ventilation sculpture I thought It was a phone box or a public toilet. I like the large sculpture too, I think because its dimensions and its wingspan. Howeve, I don't like the Asian sculpture, but I can't say why, considering that I'm not expert at art.Bye and thanks for your article.

I have never seen such sculptures before. I really liked the ventilation tower. I thought it was a phone booth the first time i saw it because, because for some reason I associated it with the other phone booths next to it Fri 22 Mar 2013 09:10:07 GMT+1 gerleeng http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/community/2013/03/130319_blog_public_art.shtml?page=20#comment2 The public arts in the photos are nice. My favourite is the asian-one. It makes me think or try to find what was in the artist's mind before calving it. Haven't got a clue now, but still thinking. The metro ventilation is good for its functionality.

As you are walking further, you will identify a statue and wonder what is the purpose of this object and who made it. Maybe another civilization, you will wonder? ... but it's just a dream because you said this statue is in front of the motorway! I am sorry for its situation. I would rather wish to discover this Angel in the middle of nowhere. So the mystery of this theme could really worked! But still, the Angel is my favorite work of art. Because of it color, size, wings. It could mean that humans must have feet on the ground because we are living on earth but at the same time, our spirit ( wings) is looking for more space and want to fly. One interpretation in a hundred other possible, I guess!
