Smoke and mirrors


Pottered along the cliffs between Tamarama and Bondi today to sniff out this year’s Sculpture by the Sea. Over a hundred crazy, provocative ideas and this double-sided mirror of me with two shadows standing on the beach. Got very confused and ran away spooked!

    Wow, that’s really weird – how did you do it? I love it!

      It’s a series of about six doubled sided mirrorsin the shape of dogs – they’re buried into the sand so they’re quite stable. The whole exhibition is fabulous!

    That’s very cool…. but it also looks like something a person can walk into accidentally?

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Oct 27 2013 3:13 pm

      Not really – they’re a group of them – about six of all different dogs. You can walk aroung them because they’re lifesize. Don’t think you’d bump into them:)

    That is a pretty weird thing to find on the beach.

      Yes – and lots of other strange sculptures too – a massive three week sculpture-fest over about 2km cliff walk. Now in it’s 17th year.

    Oh no Ruby. Mum wants to go down there and check it out but think she may just take the Toddler. Think both me and Toddler may be a bit of a challenge but will keep an eye for this thing if I do get to go along.

      This is on the beach at tamarama. Lots of real dogs around but it might be easier if you stayed fast asleep at home. Also amazingly busy! Park on the north side of bronte and walk around,

    Nemo is not noted for his bravery. If that freaked you out a bit, I’m sure it might give Nemo the willies, too!

      Yes she couldn’t work it out at all – and there were about six different images of different dogs altogether. She’s a funny old thing:)

    Oh noes Rubes

    That’s an interesting idea. Don’t worry Ruby, sometimes my reflection scares me too!

    Totally weird/fab Ruby šŸ™‚ hugs Fozziemum xx

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Oct 28 2013 7:02 pm

      Yes they were as were heaps of the other sculpture. Such a great event:)

      • fozziemum / Oct 28 2013 7:06 pm

        I imagine it was..normally we see it on the news …dang must have missed it šŸ™‚

      • rubytheblacklabrador / Oct 28 2013 7:28 pm

        Think other things are still keeping the new people busy – including more fires.

      • fozziemum / Oct 28 2013 7:31 pm

        Great…all you need..we have had rain all day..ridiculous…

      • rubytheblacklabrador / Oct 28 2013 8:15 pm

        Actually we had coastal storms all night (I was fast asleep) but no rain inland. First rain for 6 weeks.

      • fozziemum / Oct 28 2013 8:18 pm

        Nice to get the rain there..just hope mudslides don’t happen due to the soil being uprooted by trees..seems you can’t win long as you and yours are safe šŸ™‚

      • rubytheblacklabrador / Oct 29 2013 9:32 am

        We are all safe although more back burning today and the city is shrouded in particulate matter…

      • fozziemum / Oct 29 2013 9:35 am

        I hate becomes a part of summer and spring and leeches into everything….

    Kind of cool!

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Oct 30 2013 2:02 pm

      Yes – there were about 6 dogs in all but this was the closest to looking like Ruby. The other 100 sculptures are great too:)
