I had the pleasure and privilege of going to the Paralympics on Saturday and Sunday 1 and 2 September. Saturday for cycling at the velodrome and Sunday at the main stadium for the athletics. Planning a blog about those visits but it’s getting late tonight and it would take a couple of hours, with all the photos. So a little taster here, of the buildings as we left on Sunday night. iPhone as my camera had run out of battery. With some of those distortions when you zoom in.
The multicoloured stadium.
A distorted detail.
The Orbit in iPhone techno colour.
I look at these and the Orbit starts to make sense. Virtual reality.
I zoomed in, and I luv it all!
Keep on zooming!
Nope, still don’t get the Orbit. Well sort of do, in that the loops are orbits and the viewing platform is sort of (but not quite) in the centre of the orbits. But other than that, nope, don’t get it.
Maybe we’re not meant to get it. Or just meant to decide what IT is for ourselves. I like the way it changes with the background, the atmosphere. And the way that the fact that it has no symmetry annoys people. It provokes.
