Random Fridays: Under the rainbow

No Photoshopping, honest! The rainbow really did stretch from one side of the horizon to another. Though I do admit I was concerned that the ship might lurch and my glass (plastic) would tumble onto the balcony below mine.

Random Fridays: Could I ever have belonged to the heavens?

Icarus Container, Yukinori Yanagi

This photo shows part of an art work at this year’s Biennale on Cockatoo Island. Viewers walked through darkened shipping containers with mirrors on which were etched extracts of Icarus from Sun and Steel by Yukio Mishima. (While Mishima’s version is not that of the ancient myth, in which Icarus flew so close to the sun that the wax holding his feathered wings together melted and he fell to earth, it nonetheless evokes that story.)

The viewer’s perception changed as they walked through the containers, turning corners and looking back; the experience was very affecting.

Random Fridays: Wisteria

It’s spring here in Sydney, which means the wisteria is giving us its annual brief blaze of glory. The temperature on Wednesday was 32C, which won’t have done these delicate blossoms any good! But while it’s blooming, it’s beautiful.

Sadly, the flowers are already starting to drop.

Fallen glory.
