Clearing the decks

This photo was taken with the mobile telephone a good bit before the end of 2008. I can't recall why we were at Fed Square, but we came across this bit of 'artwork'. I think it the bits were spinning or something. There has been some water under the bridge since then.

  2. Wow! That looks very cool! I did not get to see that exhibit. Were they plastic things? Or glass? They look fragile plus.

  4. They would have an interesting texture Brian.

    Looked like glass Cazzie. They were suspended on wires.

    Scaring me Jayne.

  5. Have you seen the Ab Fab episode "Death"? You really must, if you want to understand what makes good art.

  6. I am gay Deb, therefore it must follow that I have seen every episode of Ab Fab. Was that the one where Patsy fell into the grave? Or are you referring to the white room?

  7. I do believe Patsy falls into the grave at the end.
    Remember Eddie's father dies, therefore reminding her of her own mortality? She finds out that Saffie doesn't want her inheritence, so she goes to buy some art to spend it all on. Only she doesn't care what it's about or who it's by "I just want to know how much it's worth" She says. The classic scene is when she is showing Patsy her "Art" in the living room around her fathers dead body.
    You really must revisit that episode...

  8. Gosh Deb, I have only seen every episode three or four times and you expect me to recall it. I have them on tape, no, now dvd, so will check it.
