Steve Jobs monument in Chinese ghost city

Embedded in the long linked blog post about Kangbashi, China’s so-called Ghost City that was built for a population of one million people but is largely uninhabited, is a monument to Steve Jobs.

The sculpture, a hexagon containing the outline of an apple and Jobs’ face, is not that strange in itself. What’s strange is that it is located behind an apparently unused school, in the middle of hundreds of thousands of vacant apartments in the Kangbashi New Area of Ordos, a shining metropolis built by China in Inner Mongolia that has been called the world’s biggest ghost city.

Here’s a link to the picture of the monument, to save you a bit of scrolling.

    Sorry Bohemian Blog but when I get an in-your-face window asking me to like on Facebook right off the bat, I go somewhere else.

    “The Detroit of the East” – really bizarre.

    Actually, that monument park looks cool: Apples and people. Jobs, Newton and another couple of silhouettes I can’t make out.
