no.16 Mushroom Cloud Playhouse

 When an image stands in limbo, between associations, it occupies a flexible place in our mind. Wegner creates images that are safe and unsettling, abject and beautiful?The ephemeral beauty of a mushroom cloud is frightening, how it floats for a minute, delicate and blooming, yet remains chaotic and utterly destructive. We experience a contradiction between what our eyes enjoy and what our mind knows. -Dietrich Wegner

When I first saw this sculpture, I immediately though of children?s storybook. but when I took a close look of it, I realized this was an mushroom cloud. Then I start to having so many thoughts, and start to question myself, how dare that I thought that was cute. I like it because it make me don?t want to comment.
