Will He Jump?

Don’t worry about the guy perched on the fourth-story ledge of a building in Vienna. People stop and wonder, but he won’t jump. That’s just art. With a small A. The building houses investment and real estate offices, and the man is made of plastic. The art installation is scheduled to stay up for a year.
The artist, Austrian Ronald Kodritsch, says the piece -- called "Reason to Believe" -- is not necessarily about suicide.

"It's not interesting whether he will jump or not. It's all about having a different perspective on things and about what might cross his mind," Kodritsch told Reuters. "Hyperrealism is boring!"
