Despite my general disappointment with this display, there were a few satisfying sights.
Walking onto the groyne I suddenly realised I was being watched.
By an entity much more benign than a CCTV camera. Curiously named “evolution” by its creator, local artist David Carstairs, it smiles at everyone walking past.
Although, at $6,600 for this Cheshire-Cat-like metallic caricature, perhaps the cameras would be better value.
