Were you at Tom Otterness's "The Real World" installation in Rockefeller Park?

David Marc Fischer said...

That isn't what you're seeing here.

Dolph said...

Are you enjoying a "Lesson" at the Little Red Schoolhouse at 6th Ave and Houston?

Is this the Otterness that is on Roosevelt Island, I think on the west side of the island along the water?

David Marc Fischer said...

So far Gary is the warmest....

Debbie said...

The Hilton on 42nd St.?

Scott said...

14th street and 8th avenue?

David Marc Fischer said...

Debbie and Scott: No and No. Sorry!

Dolph said...

Are you outside in Manhattan?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, I wasn't.

Dolph said...

Ok, Ok, bad question. Inside in Manhattan?

David Marc Fischer said...

Nope!

Scott said...

brooklyn botanical garden?

David Marc Fischer said...

Nope!

David Marc Fischer said...

But nice try, Scott!

Dolph said...

Is this at the Queens Museum of Art?

David Marc Fischer said...

No, I'm afraid not!

Dolph said...

How about at Hofstra University? Which is warmer?

Debbie with Scott's help said...

Bronx Botanical Garden?

David Marc Fischer said...

Right you are!

In a tribute to togetherness, Debbie with Scott's help has identified my whereabouts as The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx--specifically, the Tom Otterness piece Amorphophallus Titanum, 2005.

Yes, among the many Otterness sculptures sprinkled around the city is a tribute to the infamous big and stinky "corpse flower," a sample of which blossomed last month at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

I happened upon Amorphophallus Titanum outside the Nolen Greenhouses as I was taking in the excellent Dale Chihuly show that is at the Garden through October 29, 2006. I highly recommend making the trip to the Garden to see the glasswork amongst the greenery.

I'm not sure whether I should give Debbie full credit for this one. She can decide how much of the point goes to her and how much to Scott.

Reminds me of that childhood game Cooties, where the first one to put their plastic arachnid together wins!

David Marc Fischer said...

Yeah, and maybe Day of the Triffids or Invasion of the Body Snatchers or that Star Trek episode with the spores....
