  • Edmonton's Got Balls!

    The Talus Dome before landscaping and other final touches.


    Looking up to the sky from the Talus Dome (yes it sounds too much like TELUS doesn't it).


    A close up and unintentional self portrait at the Talus Doom. Yep, that is my son and me in the centre doom.


    Last one. I really think the landscaping will make a huge difference. This is really so unlike Edmonton as we put most art, architecture and anything interesting in places where it is hard to get to in order to see. Nearly everybody will see this, and they will say, "Edmonton has balls!".


    I lied, this is actually the last one.

    Hope they don't crack with the constant expansion/contraction cycle we see here in town.

      "Edmonton has yarbles" is the correct phrase...

          Cool!

          However we know what happened to the bulls' balls. I hope it's going to be raised way up high to prevent vandalism and or damage from gravel flung off cars, lawn mowers, etc. Plus to keep it clean of road grime.

          What are they made from? Solid or hollow?
          Upon closer inspection it looks like it's going to sit on the ground! If so, it sure looks like a foible to me.

            That's kinda cool....not the greatest place for cool art. A blind person who's drunk could tell me this!

            As for Edmonton having balls........Balls are sensitive and weak. Grow a Vagina.....there a lot more durable and take a pounding.

                I like it but wonder if the sun reflecting off of it will blind drivers?

                  refering to the male genitalia. originates from the literary piece "A Clockwork Orange". "come and get one in the yarbles, if you've GOT any Yarbles!"

                    What's all this talk about genitalia. I was posting about ball "bearings". Edmonton's got ball bearings.

                              I don't agree that we need to add art at 1% of the project cost. The 'art' should be incorporated into the architecture of the actual project pieces. I definately do not agree that this needs to be outsourced to a California company I am sure we have plenty of artists in town that could have devised something to this effect.
