This reminded me of a quote from one of my favourite movies, The Castle‘s Darryl Kerrigan: “Dad, he reckons powerlines are a reminder of man’s ability to generate electricity.”

  1. The american architects Choi + Shine have inspired by the artworks of the artist Elena Paroucheva, and still have plagiarize her ideas. She works in the field of the visual impact of overhead networks: power lines, wind energy sculptures, mobil phone antennas … for over 10 years.

    Elena’s pylons – sculptures are beautiful ladies, birds, flowers, cathedrals … according to the landscape of the country. See:

    Elena Paroucheva inaugurated in 2004 a unique artwork: “Source” – four pylons of a high voltage power line are dressed in colorful dresses, through a tourist and thermal sity visited by 5 million tourists a year. On September every year during the European Heritage Days , the artist is present for a guided tour. Visit to Amnéville les Thermes, France and see the website .

    I call the journalists to present this unique work before pasting the glory to architects plagiarism.
