Sunshine

The artworks on display seem to change every few weeks. A little while ago it was words created out of bread: “GREED” for example.

This week it’s spinning black circles showing little animations through the gaps, like something from a Victorian-era side show.

And live music today. Sometimes it’s a woman with a cello. Today it’s a busker singing Billy Bragg’s “Must I Paint You A Picture” while his dog looks on lazily from his position of horizontal near-slumber. It’s not the most brilliant rendition, but at least it’s recognisable.

Up the stairs, out of the Degraves Street subway I walk, and into the sunshine.

The glorious sunshine. Was just my luck to be stuck in the office today.

  1. A number of weeks ago at Spencer Street station there was an excellent exhibition of ‘found’ pieces of paper: notes, shopping lists, signs, etc. I found it fascinating.

  2. Those ‘spinning black circles’ are called Zoetroeps (sp?).

    They are a scientific curiousity toy from the Victorian era, and are most useful to demonstrate persistence of vision, which is the basis of motion pictures and television.
