And not just kids, but some more impressionable adults can be psychologically scarred from letting these monsters into their dreams and thinking too much about them. Did you ever dream of killing a crocodile with a bunch of cutlery? Let’s have an intermission here, so that you could take a breather from all this ugliness. We would like to put a label “abandoned” on this photo series, but in most cases, these playgrounds are still in use, and children are playing freely along the manic random sculptor’s nightmares. Cthulhu invites you for the ride! Article by Avi Abrams, Dark Roasted Blend. Read the rest of “Architectural Horrors” series!
Dark Roasted Blend” – All Kinds of Weird and Wonderful Things, Discovered Daily! DRB is a top-ranked and respected source for the best in art, travel and fascinating technology, with a highly visual presentation. I did recognize one of the sculptures as a representation of a Russian folk story about a farmer trying to pull a huge beet or turnip from the ground. It only looks scary in sculpture. Why vote for the lesser evil? Why on earth would you do something so ugly!
There was a exhibition in 1980 when this strange thing was built. BRAIN, you create SCARY thoughts from that, and kids are not brainwashed like you. If anyone actually did successfully sue somebody over this, they and anyone that thinks it was a good idea should get impaled, stuffed, and made into a creepy statue for a playground somewhere. The turtle and snail sculptures were pretty cute.
I also liked the black bear looking little guys that were just a picture or two after the “intermission”. Still, only SOME kids wont like the giant bugs. You have some very interesting images here. So you wanted to prove with this gallery that you have a very narrow concept of art? And what has this to do with playgrounds? I would’ve loved to have something like this growing up. A little bit of scariness can be exciting!
I agree with the Mcdonalds comment. Ronald Mcdonald is surely the most scary thing on earth! Allot of that is interesting abstract art, you are way to ignorant to realize how this could add to a kids imagination. And if a kid doesn’t like whats at the park go to a different one. Or the parent should explain to the kid that theirs nothing scary about it. Most of you people are just ignorant to any kind of abstract art any ways. I was flicking through the pictures and I spotted one I knew.
Api-punk, Abstract art is a wonderful thing when done tastefully. Some of the sculptures shown here are cool, but not all kids might appreciate it. Why don’t we have more of that here in The States. If anyone has ever successfully sued because a park scarred themthey need to be locked in a room with the bleeding eye lady!
