Neuron at Circular Quay

Yesterday Adam and I went down to the Museum of Contemporary Art to check out the giant neuron on the lawn. Roxy Paine's steel astrocyte is pretty impressive!

As we arrived, a group of Biennale guides were getting their instructions about what to say to curious onlookers: Yes, you can touch it. No, you can't climb on it. When they learned that Adam was a neuroscientist, he was happy to give the group an impromptu mini-lecture about brain cells and brain function.

Despite the threat of an imminent shower of rain, we snapped some great pictures!
