On Sunday, James treated me to the delights of the Farnborough Airshow. It was absolutely mad – like fireworks in the daytime. Noisy, brash, smelly and brilliant.
Far and away the thing that made the biggest impact though was the art right before it. The Wind Tunnel Project, specifically Flying Into The Dawn by Thor McIntyre Burnie. Two absolutely beautiful sound installations that hammered around the space available with only minimal intervention in terms of projection, signage etc. I wish I’d visited earlier – it closed yesterday.
Very few photos snapped, even fewer that turned out nice. Here’s one of the final room, and Bridle.
I need to see more sound art/land art/infrastructure art. If you know where I can find any let me know.
