UNUSUAL metal monolith structures have been grabbing the headlines across the world in recent weeks after mysteriously popping up out of nowhere – and now Shetland has one too.
A shiny metal structure was spotted outside the Art Machine office in Lerwick at around 4pm this afternoon (Friday).
Art Machine director Craig Sim said: “We were aware of these monoliths popping up mysteriously all around the world, but we never thought we would see one in Shetland.”
It may or may not be a coincidence that the monolith has turned up outside design company Art Machine – with some suggesting the structures, first seen in a Utah desert, have been something of a global art project.
