An average Saturday night is witness to a lot of human debauchery that manifests in a variety of forms, yet 'The Way Things Are' art installation shows that lampposts can also behave badly. After a long night of shining intoxicating light on people's fun activities, they are a little worse for wear come morning time. Whether bent fully over or careening to one side, it really does boil down to the way things are.
Created by Chris Hanson and Hendrika Sonnenberg, both graduates of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, The Way Things Are art installation was commissioned by Waterfront Development Corporation and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. As such, it is located along the boardwalk of Halifax's waterfront.
