Gormely in Brazil

Antony Gormely is still inflicting body casts of his naked self upon an unsuspecting world. What an ego! His latest casts are on a tall building in Sao Paulo, Brazil. As usual - except in the Alps - firefighters have been called to the scene because bystanders fear the casts are potential jumpers intending to commit suicide. The local press have nicknamed the casts "suicide statues" (CLICK). Gormley reminds me of Lady Bracknell's response to Jack's admission that he smokes, "That is well. A man should always have an occupation" (Oscar Wilde: The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895).

Don't just blame him, also blame the idiot who allowed him to put it there.

True. There are idiots aplenty. He's done the same thing in London and New York, as well as in the Alps.
