It didn’t take us long to find a picture that would bring this week to a close. The statue in tribute to Steve Jobs that you can see just above is on its way to Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, and is the result of a contest with over ten thousand proposals that Apple has received. The author: a Serbian sculptor named Dragan Radenovic.
The sculpture will be three to five meters high (the one in the image is just a scale model), and it is composed of a metal column crowned by Jobs’ head and decorated halfway between the numbers 0 and 1 (reminiscent of the binary system) and the letters A of the Latin alphabet and ? of the Cyrillic alphabet. According to the source, Apple executives have been interested in “the imperfections” of the work.
I’m not an art expert, but I don’t deviate much from the opinions that have circulated throughout this week on the web that describe this statue as strange. I’ll just say that I like the Budapest statue a lot better, although I’m certainly not one to say how the Apple co-founder should be honoured. Radenovic will travel to Cupertino soon to polish the final details of the sculpture with the company’s management.
