Challenge #8 Bling and a headshot

Welcome to our challenge for February.Because it is a short month I'm starting you off as soon as I can.Entries for this challenge #8 close midnight on February 28th.
Here is the picture...hang on to your hats,it is different!


Czech artist David Černý's North Carolina piece 'Metalmorphosis.'

Maybe it is because it is a giant, mirrored head which rotates, spits water, deconstructs and reconstructs before our eyes. Or perhaps it is the fact that the whole thing is filmed on webcam so you can keep tabs on it at all times. But it's most likely because 'Metalmorphosis' makes our world look the way we secretly hoped it would when we saw 'Terminator' for the first time.

The mammoth undertaking weighs 14 tons, and the "seven-metre tall structure with horizontally-moving stainless-steel plates... form, and re-form, a giant metal head." Since 2007, it has been on display at the Whitehall Technology Park in Charlotte, North Carolina.here's a link to a video where you can watch it move.
