The ripple effect

The foreshore area of Cape Town is pretty windswept and ugly, but this little square - called Jetty Square in remembrance of its early days on the edge of the sea which is now a kilometre or so away - has been uplifted with these remarkable shark wind sculptures by Ralph Borland. The skeletal sharks and the watery ripple in the cobblestones really does make one think of the sea. They also make a whistling noise as they swing around in the wind. I wonder if they are generating electricity?

  1. This is very interesting. Much better than some of the sculptures they are putting up around here.
