Page 1, Egg reactions mixed
. The Palo Alto Public Art Commission
, lead by Gerald Brett, has very suspect tastes in art and has decided to foist them on the city of Palo Alto. Brett has promoted this particular piece of art--Digital DNA--for some time. Apparently, the symbolism (egg + circuit board=technology incubator) was too obvious to ignore. It didn't occur to him that this simplicity meant that the work short circuited thought. The Burning Squirrel has conducted an informal survey--no one likes the egg. Nothing mixed or even scrambled about that.
