Bondi, advertisement

Over the last couple of weeks I have been featuring sculptures at the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition. This curious sculpture at the entrance to the exhibition was not actually one of the exhibits but a clever, or rather, sneaky promotion. The "Hello Sydney" number plate features an email address which is also inscribed on the 'artwork'. Once you visit the website, you realise this 'sculpture' was actually an advertisement for a new car, which is about to be launched.

  5. Hiya J,
    You always manage to find such interesting subjects around your area. This empty car makes for a beautiful image with the sea behind.

  9. Very surprising and creative. For a moment I really had the feeling I was looking to an advertisement in stead of to your weekly SWF post ...
    Thanks for sharing!

    skeleton is interesting!

  12. The car is quite artistic. I enjoyed many of the art work. I wished to have the keeper in my garden. Also liked the leaf vessel very much. The greater grater made me smile, very useful when cooking for a crowd! We have something similar at Currumbin beach in September.

  15. I enjoyed looking at the photos of the sculptures you posted. The tube of red paint was perhaps my favorite. Some of those I could have made. Thanks for sharing.
