Land of Giants Transmission Towers

These are from the Massachusetts-based Jin Choi and Thomas Shine who received the 2010 Boston Society of Architects Unbuilt Architecture Award for their “Land of Giants” project. The pylon-figures can be configured to respond to their environment with appropriate gestures. As the carried electrical lines ascend a hill, the pylon-figures change posture, imitating a climbing person.

Not sure if these were ever built. Anyone know where they may be?
