Signage on an old door - Dunedin's industrial precinct, 2010
This isn't the image I'd intended to post this evening, but each time I look at this photograph, I appreciate it again for the metaphors it contains. I especially love the way the glass on this sign (whose sole task it is to shield the printed instruction - ALL ENQUIRIES TO OFFICE - from the elements) has not only invited the weather in but taken the opportunity to use our local dirt and rain as drawing materials. Instead of looking past a boring old notice, we find ourselves being invited to peer into a mysterious - and daily evolving - landscape.
I'm going to be away from home for a wee while (a few days, a week; possibly longer - am not yet sure. Much will depend on the 'weather'.). I'm thinking of leaving my computer behind (a big challenge for me).
Be safe. Play plenty. Let's all rest at least as much as we work each day and laugh more than we cry. We all seem to be saying a similar thing - challenging times, these. The presence of grit and rain suggests a new landscape-in-the-making. We do what we must; enter and walk, one day at at time. . . xo
PS. I recently started putting together a new blog as an adjunct to my October exhibition. The title of the show is the blog address - www.watersihaveknown.blogspot.com Both blog and exhibition are still very much 'works in progress' but I invite you to have a look-see at what's there so far. Thanks. Back soon - C.
