Some high-voltage lines are better than others (11 Photos)

Leave it to Iceland to have a High-Voltage Pylon competition. This years winner designed what they called the "Land of Giants." Making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed tower design, they have created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable. Iceland is now looking to make many more of these artistic-yet-functional pylons. Would be kinda cool if they brought this idea to 'Merica.

                  A little too much static in this thread.

    There are tons of electrical jokes to be made, but all I can think is Iron Giant.

      I'm really amped for when they build them here.

    Yes by all means bring to the USA and let the whining begin!! :

    "There aren't enough female figures."
    "Why do all look like white guys?"
    " Why aren't there any animal shapes?"
    " How about a couple of lesbian pylons."
    "Dammit leave'm alone. the Christian right loves those old gray hulks just the way they are!!"

    It would be cool to bring this idea to merica, but we got too many assholes running around. Some damn fool just might see fit to pray for your ruination if you did bring em here. I think this is very artistic.

    If they do this in the U.S., my entries going to have 4 of them doing the Y M C A poses.

  • VryeDenker

    If they do this in America, it is a scientific FACT that someone will give their pylon a dong.

    I hate to group an entire region into one idea, but I have always thought there were very interesting and artistic things that came from the Scandinavian countries. Beautiful women, beautiful artwork, and beautiful ideas for conservation and the environment. All of these things also come from all over the world, so don't get the idea I am saying it's only the Scandinavian folks doing good. I just notice more from that part of the world for some reason….which it's probably because I'd like to visit sometime.:D
