Antony Micallef – Weapon Face

We pass by so many objects & images each day that we become desensitized. I passed by this sculpture the other day and it just made me start thinking about why we notice some things and not others. Art is always subjective and visceral. I liked that this sculpture is outside in front of the Royal Academy across the street from Abercrombie & Finch where there seems to be a young and enthusiastic crowd outside the store front everyday.

The placque on the nickel plated sculpture reads: The Idol of Kids Today – Weapon Face. You can see more of Antony Micallef’s work at the Royal Academy from 1 November 2008 to Jan 19, 2009.
