Random Fridays: Blue Trees

Blue trees. Okay, something about that is just wrong. Wrong … but certainly eye catching!

Seriously, though: ‘The Blue Trees’ is an environmental art installation that draws attention to global deforestation by turning living, breathing trees bright blue, demanding we notice them before the planet’s old forests are gone for good. Artist Konstantin Dimopoulos uses a biologically safe, water based colourant. [from the blurb beside the trees]

Blue tree, orange umbrella.

Sailing around Fiji

I spent two weeks in June on the tall ship Tenacious sailing around some of the islands that make up Fiji. You’ll no doubt see a few photos on this blog as time goes on (!), but here’s a video I made that sums up the voyage. If the embedded video doesn’t work or you’d prefer the larger version, you can view it directly on youtube.

Random Fridays: Sculpture

'Retreat From Investment' by Camille Henrot

‘Retreat From Investment’ by Camille Henrot

I saw this sculpture at the Biennale exhibit at Cockatoo Island in April. Its smooth bronze shape contrasted with the rough cement walls and metal beams of the room, and the lighting drew your eye to the sculpture. I don’t understand the title (‘Retreat From Investment’), but that’s not necessarily an obstacle to enjoyment.
