I’m not sure if it’s because people react strongly to the human figure, or whether it’s the juxtaposition of disparate elements which create a variety of narratives.  Regardless, this image of the Antony Gormley Sculpture at the Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, garners lots of comments and remains one of my favorites.

After spending the morning sunrise in the newly completed Barcode Area of Oslo (see first image in Oslo portfolio), and a brisk walk along the roofline of the Oslo Opera House (yes, you can walk along the sloping  roofline to the top), I headed to the the Renzo Piano designed Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art.

After finding several interesting scenes, I found this sculpture by Antony Gormley attached to the side of the building looking straight down.  I especially like how the tower angles-in from the top right–it’s like a scene from Goldinger (James Bond).
