I’ve been hoping for an opportunity to post this photo, and I think it fits the theme “through” quite well.
We went to see a travelling show called “Colourscape” when it visited a town near us. It is basically a huge structure made out of parachute-like material withmore than a hundred interjoining cells, each one being made of a different bright colour, lit by the light outside.
As we walked in, we donned cotton overalls, each in one or other of the primary colours (red, blue, or yellow).
Basically, the show was designed to make us question how colour is subject to its environment, and how our perception of colour changes. There were many rooms, and once we found our way to the central area, there was a couple of acoustic musicians playing guitar and bongos. It was all quite trippy really, and very laid back.
I took this picture of my son and a friend walking through the structure. This is a completely original photo – no Photoshop, no nothing – so you get an idea of how deep and gorgeous the colours were.
Unfortunately, there was an accident at a later event, when the structure was lifted into the air by a strong gust of wind, and crashed to the floor. Two women who were inside it at the time were killed. I thought they’d retired the show after that, but, having just looked it up on the web, it seems it’s up and running again.
