Where's the digital chicken?

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.

I like the egg. As public art goes, it's not bad at all. My daughter is an egg fan as well.
