Imagine Peace Tower - Yoko Ono

I'm not one to go for this sort of thing, if you get what I mean. but I like the idea of it, maybe as art and intervention I guess.

It's in Iceland...so those TFPer's who are there can visit it! Have you?

Saw it on TV the night it opened, which was highly entertaining (mostly because Yoko was being so weird)--otherwise, haven't really given much thought to it, and certainly won't be visiting it, since that would require spending money on a boat trip to the island. The only time I notice it is when they turn it on in the winter and it seriously looks like a bat signal... that would have made it so much cooler, if it were.

Haven't been to it since it's on an island off the coast of Reykjavík. But I've seen the light, of course, last winter (they turn it off during the summer since there's no real night anyway). Some people call it the bat signal. Wouldn't it be much cooler if it were an actual bat signal?

/useless trivia: batman = leğurblökumağur in Icelandic.

Edit: I see abaya posted just before me.. Alright, all that's missing now is Zweiblumen, and then the entire Icelandic contingent will have answered!
