A Ferris Wheel of Gears


Sculpture near Nadrazi Holesovice.
Graffiti isn't the only form of street art you find in Prague. Here's one free-standing example I really like. Only a few of the wheels turn in the breeze.

My immediate thought: Does it squeek when the wheels are turning?

Boy oh boy...what sleep deprivation does to the mind...

A wonder.

You knew I'd have to respond, didn't you? Definitely my kind of art work. Ideally it should generate power or play a slow movement from one of the Janacek string quartets.

Bouncy, I think it must! I have never heard it myself but surely no one is oiling those gears.

Thanks Zhoen.

And BB - I thought you might like this photo, street art for the tinkerers amongst us (myself included)!
