Silica, Big Lamp Corner, Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset 31 August 2016
This bizarre needle is entitled "Silica". It was commissioned in 2006 by North Somerset Council as a piece of public art, an advertising sign, a retail kiosk selling newspapers and hot food, and a bus shelter - a very versatile if bizarre, artwork. It was criticised by many residents and dubbed "the carrot" and "the space ship".
