An Octopus Typewriter by Courtney Brown. As part of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art’s annual California Sculpture SLAM, Oakland artist Courtney Brown unveiled this unweildly typing device titled “Self Organization,” that went on to win first place. Brown used a 1938 Underwood typewriter affixed with sculpted bronze tentacles. We can’t wait to read its first book. All of the sculptures from the event are still on view through November 15, 2015.
Inflatable Kites. This very neat-looking Octopus kite has internal ribs - unlike some of the latest very large designs. It seems to be staring very intently at something on the ground... T.P. (my-best-kite.com) "Southsea Kite Festival, Octopus" Cropped from a photo by Mark Hooper on Flickr.
