FRANZ of Prague

One morning, Franz Kafka was waking up from anxious dreams. Feeling not like himself, Franz was instead forty-two independently driven layers of stainless steel. This huge, kinetic sculpture, titled "K on Sun", is by Czech artist David Cerny. It can be found in a business center in Prague, distracting people from the frustrations of dealing with government employees. As I'm sure Kafka would have wanted it. by Mel Fim via vimeo

Chris O´Shea: Audience

Audience, conceived by rAndom International, is an installation consisting of around 64 head-size mirror objects. Each object moves its head in a particular way to give it different characteristics of human behaviour. Some chat amongst themselves, some shy away and others confidently move to grab your attention.
