The 100' Electric Beanstalk

Of course, this installation isn't called The 100' Electric Beanstalk, but maybe it ought to. Actually, it's One Hundred Foot Line by the American artist Roxy Paine, and it's installed in the back lot of the National Gallery of Canada on Nepean Point in Ottawa.

One thing is certain - I don't think I'd want to put my tongue on this in the winter or hold on to it during an electrical storm!
