Alien artifacts?

Sculpture outside the main entrance to the Victoria Airport departures termincal...
No, not some alien radio satellites...

Recently while waiting for my wife at the Victoria airport, I killed some time taking photos. "Bouquet of Memories" is an art installation by artist Illarion Gallant outside the entrance to the departures gate. The giant brightly coloured flowers normally cheer people up but on this particularly grey day, they were just dark silhouettes against the sky so I went for a different look instead.

I met Illarion some years ago in a shared public speaking class. He was an interesting guy to listen to... very unpretentious but his language was very lyrical and engaging. His work can be found throughout Victoria.
