Unusual Fountain/Sculpture of the Week

You want weird? I've got weird! How about two mechanical statues of men urinating into a pool? Not weird enough?
OK, the pool is the shape of the Czech Republic and the statues 'write' quotations from famous residents of Prague.
You can interrupt the statues by sending them a text message and they will then 'write' your message.
It's in the grounds of the Franz Kafka Museum in Prague (which probably explains everything).

See, I wasn't making it up! The sculptor, David Cerny, has created all sorts of weird artworks, and even his website is a bit 'unusual'.

  1. Why yes, that qualifies as very unusual. And brings back long suppressed memories of the aftermath of a huge punk-rock party at the artists collective I once rented space at. One of the projects that night was the appearance of a large circle in the dirt and gravel courtyard of the place...let's just say the line to the one functioning bathroom was long.
    I'll have to get back to his website, it also qualifies as unusual...
