Mutating blob

The latest installment in a series of temporary works adorning an empty plinth in the Edinburgh Gardens is a morphing blob by Sarah crowEST. The work is noted to be a 'suggestively human-proportioned mound'. One senses that Queen Victoria, a wooden image of whom graced the plinth in 1901, would not be amused.
 
The apparently un-named work is intended to 'mutate' over the 5 months that it is in place. Previous work by the artist has included waste materials clumped together to form organic blobs. We'll keep an eye on it between now and September and see what eventuates.
