Friday Fictioneers – Bernhard

Bernhard received his first commission shortly after participating in a regional TV reality sculpture show.

His winning sculpture was lauded by the Jury amongst the usual tears and scripted interviews of his proud family.

After some photos in the newspapers and a brief mention on prime time TV, Bernhard settled back into to his daytime job at the supermarket.

Depicting a massive timepiece, the commissioned sculpture, which stands proudly in the park, has undergone changes.

The wind broke the hands, rain has accelerated the oxidation and clambering visitors have buckled its form.

Bernhard is satisfied.

He named his sculpture Impermanence.


It’s nice to participate once again in this wonderful weekly Flash Fiction Challenge that is Friday Fictioneers.

  1. An audience-participation performance art??! Ingenious. The man will end up owning the supermarket. Next thing we know, he’ll have us checking out our own groceries, or pumping our own gasoline….
    Oh well, back to stock-boy at the supermarket.
    Cute story. Great idea. 🙂
