Another Place

About a year ago, I was excited to see some of Antony Gormley's Event Horizon public art installation appear around Manhattan. The other day I learned (thanks to this post) about another Gormley installation on Crosby Beach near Liverpool, England. Like Event Horizon was, Another Place is a series of 100 life sized, figural sculptures. They're placed at various points along water's edge on the beach and are revealed and submerged to varying degrees as the tide ebbs and flows.

I think these are so haunting and fascinating. Can you imagine what it would be like to stumble upon these on the beach without knowing what they are?

And to keep from being too highbrow and artsy, it looks as though people have had some fun with the sculptures too:
