Proving that art can exist anywhere, architecture firm Choi+Shine created this proposal to turn Iceland's electricity-carrying power pylons into beautiful sculptural giants.

Power pylons are dotted throughout Iceland's majestic natural scenery, supporting the electric lines that carry power to its populated areas. Choi+Shine propose replacing the power pylons with wireframe sculptures shaped like towering human beings. The fascinating sculptures would be posed in formations suiting their environment -- for example, power pylons on uphill slopes could be turned into climbing giants. The images accompanying the power pylons proposal show just how stunning and attention-grabbing the utilitarian art installation would be.

This project would turn a necessary public object -- power pylons -- into a work of art that would attract tourism and international artistic praise for the country of Iceland.
