Who Wore It Better?

Who wore it better?

On the left is the new sculpture "Flow" designed by RE:site Studio and installed at Richardson's new Fire Station #3 at the corner of Lookout and Custer. It mimics water shooting out of a vintage brass fire hose nozzle.

On the right is one sculpture of a four piece collection, "Shuttlecocks" by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City. It mimics, well, a shuttlecock.

Hmmm.. after a second look I see a spray of water flowing from a fire hose nozzle. That would make sense for a sculpture at a fire station.

Yes. Very literal. Like the Shuttlecocks.
