Opie on O'Connell St

Remember last year when The Hugh Lane ran the outdoor Barry Flanagan exhibition and we got treated to all those cool bunnies in the city centre? Well they are running a new outdoor exhibit that looks like it's going to be pretty cool. There will be four pieces by Julian Opie (nice website by the way) along the central median of O'Connell St.

If you don't already know Opies work you're probably familiar with the album cover he did for Blur.

I came across this video on youtube that gives an idea of what it will be like.

v cool vid. i like it. might the style a little out of sync with o'connell street, will it even live long enough to tell its tale or have i simply been away from the nations capital too long?

Well the rabbits survived....we're not that violent are we? Hopefully no one will damage them, I'm sure they are sturdy enough and they've been out in public before....
