Did I get my tits in a tangle over nothing? did I boob up? Did I make a giant whale of a mistake? Am I full of hot air? Or am I simply ignorant of ‘art’?
Okay, so if you didn’t get it yet I am referring to the skywhale. If you believe the media defendants and Robyn Archer the Skywhale is a huge success. Firstly it is apparently a beautiful piece of art, I am yet to see how a whale with tits would ever be a piece of art, let alone the massive stretch that is trying to link up with Canberra.
But the second part I am really starting to believe is that all news is good news! The amount of international media
is undeniable, and apparently not even totally measurable. I read one article saying that it could bring millions into the area with the soft marketing! I thought I would link just some of the huge amount of articles if you felt like a read.
So is the skywhale a success? In my very humble opinion I would give it a half mark! Half points for bring some media to Canberra, because all media is good media apparently. But end of the day… still ugly
