Skinny Snowman

VivoCity seems a mall that’s different from the others in town, because it’s by the sea. We get a great view of the island of Sentosa from across VivoCity, and there are wooden plank layed platforms for viewing the boats and ships that cruise along. I just love the super tall, skinny snowman art installation that was designed for the mall. It’s so appropriate that it’s skinny, because a fat snowman wouldn’t make sense in the tropical heat. The 13 metre tall sculpture was made during the Singapore Biennale 2006 designed by Chris Ellis from New York who is also known as Daze. I also love the architectural curves in the building design.

    Somehow the snowman does not look nice – not meant to be skinny! Perhaps they should put up a scarecrow instead – scarecrows are skinny! LOL!!!

    Great to see you here 🙂 A scarecrow would be cool too!

    So that’s why they have a snowman there! What about the little guy who hangs on a bar all day and sometimes does some somersaults?
