Giger's boots

Harakka island of Helsinki contains a relatively little known gem of art. H.R. Giger's Sabotage sculpture has been available for the general public since 2003 CE there. It is the first outdoor sculpture from Giger outside Switzerland. More on the sculpture and the occasion of its unveiling can be found from here.

That's cool. I'd love to go to the Giger museum some time. Wasn't the man working on some kind of amusement park too?

Hi Roy.

I think Giger has already some theme bar in somewhere (was it in Japan?), but I have not heard of _amusement park_...

Damn, I've got to try and visit
those shoes. They're not too
far in any case, although I've
never visited Harakka island
before. :-)
