Out of Action

I have been somewhat preoccupied lately.

A lot has happened since my last post, including:
- moving house & studio
- going to Canberra for my Cousin's wedding
- setting up a new studio
- not making any art of my own [which constitutes a creative holiday of sorts.]

Whilst in Canberra I saw a work by my old favourite, Bob Smithson, at the NGA.

This work is called Rocks and Mirror Square II. It is made from basalt rocks and mirrors. I guess Bob wasn't into puns. I am. If I'd made it, it probably would've been called  rock block, or something a bit funny like that.
After I took this photo the security guard yelled at me for taking photographs, but it was too late.

We then proceeded to the lovely sculpture garden out the back of the gallery, where I was excited to see the famous Fog Sculpture, by Fujiko Nakaya. We arrived at around 2:05pm, to find a moist sign that read:

[If you can't read it, it says 'The fog sculpture operates daily from 12:30 - 2:00pm']
I was going to ask somebody to turn it back on for a few minutes, but there were no security guards in the sculpture garden.

  1. This reminds me of a tourist whose nationality shall remain unmentioned overheard in the British Library upon reading a small, neatly printed sign that said "Magna Carta. Signed 1215"...

    "Oh darn. It's 12:30: we missed it."
