Often walk by this on the way to the waterfront, just outside the main UoS Waterfront building. Caused a fair level of debate when first put there (cost, mostly!), but now seems an accepted part of the scene.

There are several nice sculptures dotted around Ipswich. The recent pig sculptures were excellent. Not sure about this one though. Thought provoking it might be, but not pleasing on the eye for me

Situated outside of the uni this statue is eye catching. However I'm not sure what it actually represents or why it's there. Great for a photo though on a sunny day with the waterfront in the background.

I rathe like statement art juxtaposed against the modernistic UCS building. Grab a coffee from any one of the nearby excellent cafés and ponder

Not really sure how this is a thing to 'do' in Ipswich but nevertheless we visited the question mark in irony but there was nothing ironic about the fun we had. Embrace this mass of useless marble!

This 'Thing' called the question mark sculpture totally baffles me, after all this time since it was put there I still don't know what it means or the point of it. Why??? Another waste of money this stupid council has thought up of - could...More
