These are some renderings from the architects at Choi and Shine reimagining power line towers as giants. I am into this. I mean, provided my tax dollars don't have to pay for it. I just want the f***ing potholes in my neighborhood fixed.
"Like the statues of Easter Island," write Choi and Shine on their website, "it is envisioned that these one hundred and fifty foot tall, modern caryatids will take on a quiet authority, belonging to their landscape yet serving the people, silently transporting electricity across all terrain, day and night, sunshine or snow."
Electricity is crazy, right? It charges your cell phone, but it also like, hurts when you touch it. I touched live 240 volts once. That sucked. I was trying to plug in a washing machine. You ever had sex on top of a washing machine before? I have. You ever had sex on top of a washing machine before WITH A PARTNER? I want to.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots.
Thanks to David D, who doesn't care what the power line towers look like just as long as the microwave and TV work when he wants them to.
