Smoking Blue – Weekly Prompts: Blue

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Blue’ as the theme for their challenge.

As we begin the month of April Susan and I have chosen a photo challenge relating to the color BLUE as the shade most appropriate to welcome the return of spring with its blue skies, fresh air and babbling brooks.

So  this photo came to mind of a large Blue sculpture at the Eden Project. It measures nearly nine metres tall, weighs 20-tonnes, and fires out vapour rings, thought to be the world’s biggest ceramic sculpture at the time it was unveiled at the Eden Project on Tuesday, May 22 2018.

It is called ‘∞ Blue’ (Infinity Blue) and it pays homage to cyanobacteria, one of the world’s smallest living beings.  Created by duo Studio Swine (Super Wide Interdisciplinary New Explorers), Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves.
