Steve Jobs statue unveiled ahead of installation at Apple's Cupertino HQ - Page 3

post #81 of 107

I was completely unaware that Apple was going into the Coat Tree Industry . Still I think I can find a more appealing product at the local thrift store.

It must be art. I don't understand it.

Everyone gets an opinion, however this statement,"Beauty is the only reason for art and music." Is the most short sighted view of art I can imagine. And quite simply untrue.

It probably to honor Vladimir Putin. Isn't that the reason anything is done in Russia these days? 1wink.gif

Sculptor is Serbian.

I hope they put it close to the toilet in a hidden part of the center.

Thanks, that makes sense given it was unveiled in Belgrade, Serbia.

Wow! That thing is _ugly_ and an insult to a man who was very human and changed the world with the Macintosh.

 

Steve Jobs' head... impaled on a stick... reminds me of what primitive man might do to an enemy, not how Apple should honor its founder.

 

(How about Steve looking out a Mac Plus monitor or something...)

 

Another sculptor should be commissioned, and kill this horrid thing before the world sees how we honor a great man.

 

(And who was it who dismissed 10,000 other entries, and accepted this piece of s... ?)

I believe it would make an awesome coat rack. And then you could throw your hat right on Steve's head!

Looks like cancer...

It looks cancerous.

How about a Kickstarter project to raise money to pay the sculptor to change the head from Stave Jobs to that of Steve Ballmer and send it to Microsoft? :D

So, if a piece of art is loved by everyone when they see it, it isn't art.

And you call me short-sighted...

Looks like the letters "l" "o" "v" and "e" to me sticking to the sides of this atrocity. I can't believe anyone in Apple HQ would consent to having this on campus, regardless of the sculptor's reputation. It's just a hideous piece of art.

I think we can all agree that Steve Jobs would literally explode in his grave over this. I think this might be uglier than the title treatment for the movie, "Jobs".

The whole thing is pretty frightening, something out of nightmares, that odd pillar with Steve's head attached coming at me down a hallway.

I understand it's meant to be abstract art, but, mixing that with his bust just seems inappropriate. But I'm no art major.

It’s probably for the best that no one is, these days. What passes for “art”… isn’t.

 

Now, take the statue of Steve in Budapest. Its look is off a bit, but it encompasses far more of what and who Steve was than this monstrosity.

 

Steve was known for taking walks. Be it with shareholders, employees (of all his companies), or companies in potential partnership. This statue embodies that. Put it in the center of the Infinite Loop 2 courtyard and future Apple employees would always be able to “take a walk with Steve”.

 

 

Really, Apple just needs to say, “Thanks but no thanks,” and melt the Pez dispenser garbage into slag. At least then it would have use.

Cannot imagine Steve would have liked that.
