Switzerland - Basel

Basel, XII.1998; pict. S. Visser

Modern artefact inspired by
Men at Work roadsign

Suzanne Visser was stunned when her eye caught this sculpture. Perplexity didn't keep her from photographing it from all sides.

The polyhedron shows scenes of an average worker's day: installing the proper warning sign, staking the site and digging left and right. The man does more than digging. He plants trees and tilts the heap. And of course he needs to stretch his back, take a rest and enjoy a refreshing drink; that's only human.
