Sun, sand & sculptures at Sculpture by the Sea 2013

November 06, 2013

Sculpture by the sea is...well...a bunch of sculptures by the sea. More specifically it's an annual outdoor exhibition showcasing over a hundred sculptural works along the iconic coastal walk between Bondi and Tamarama beaches. 

This year there were a few memorable pieces - the giant sphere (horizon by Lucy Humphrey), giant bubble gum head (bubble no.5 by Quan Sihua), giant staircase (diminish and ascend by David McCracken) and the giant pile of mattresses (goodnight uncle john by Eko Bambang Wisnu & Ida Lawrence). Pretty much anything giant got our nod of approval.

There's of course a heap of other great pieces but every year it's hard not to just get distracted by the ocean and the simple beauty of what's in front of us. Would we go again next year? We think we prefer the view.

We're always looking for some sweet-ass photography for our blog so if you want to be featured, let us know at
