A report by Serbian news site Netokracija said that artist Dragan Radenović recently unveiled a rather unique-looking sculpture commemorating Steve Jobs. It supposedly beat more than 10,000 other entries in an Apple-sponsored art competition. [Editor’s note: The Register reports that Apple has no involvement whatsoever in such a competition or with Radenović’s work.]
The statue garnered mixed reviews on the Internet—does an aesthetic visionary so committed to sleekness in design really deserve such a clunky commemoration? If this is the winner, I can only imagine how ridiculous the rejected pieces were. Maybe I just don’t get it.
This is only the latest in a series of slightly odd tributes to the late Apple founder since his death in October 2011. Let’s take a look back on some of the other weird ways in which Jobs has been commemorated.
