One of the key landmarks is the offices of the ANEM ferry company. The office buiding itself is unremarkable. However, in its grounds is an advertisement / logo. Going past at speed in a car it appears to be just an advertisement. In slower time, on foot, it seems to take on more of a scuplture like quality.
OK it is no Naum Gabo creation.
However, when taken in isolation the painted concrete could be said to take on a Rothko like quality. The “funnel” has a horizontal hole in it – adding to the impression of the boat/ferry. The logo, company acronym, description and fuller wording (in individual letters) are all raised by a few centimetres. The shadows give a depth which complements the three flag poles – again reminiscent of sailing and the sea.
Best seen in sunshine and on a day when there’s a breeze to stimulate the flags.
