I love this thing. It's interesting and you can figure it in to some great walk/rides. It looks fab on the skyline as well.

Mildly interesting sculpture but unfortunately badly placed near to the Riverside Stadium. It doesn’t warrant anything more than a quick glance, however in a different part of the town (town centre or near the law courts maybe) this could have been a decent addition to...More

Not really a lover of ‘modern’ art but there’s certainly something different about this structure. Honestly if that’s a good different or a bad different, I'm not really sure. Thought provoking definitely.

Much of sculpture is an artistic con and can see no merit in this or any purpose , does not fit in to the area or have any connection just an odd pice stuck by the old dock, more public money wasted
