Blue sky thinking

File under: , ,

Preparation for the installation of 'SkyBlues' at Post office SquareDiggers are at work in Post Office Square, with a sign that just refers to "Environmental Enhancements". This makes it sound like something dull, such as fixing paving or drainage, but I'll wager that it's the installation of Bill Culbert's SkyBlues, one of many new public artworks that I wrote about earlier.

The French phone box is still there, though as far as I'm aware it hasn't been working for ages. The DomPost tried to beat up a story about it a while back, with someone complaining that it clutters up the place, confuses potential users and looks ghastly and modern. Pah.
