Chasing the dream through the eye of a camera!
Creating cherished memories so that I can share my journey.

week’s Headbanger theme was Kathy's:
A Small World.
interpretation is of a photo that I took in February at the Nottingham Castle this
year. Nottingham was celebrating its Light Night event. Light Night is a
national programme of events covering the whole of the UK.In 2012 more than a dozen locations
offered their residents and visitors opportunities to experience their city
from a fresh perspective. It is a chance for everyone to come together and
celebrate the city, focusing on their shared culture, history and identity.
For one night the city stays up so that its attractions and symbols are
seen in a new light. The spectators get to see the unusual in a familiar
environment and 'lose themselves' in the city, which is transformed into a
stage for the night. Light Night is the best showcase for gaining wide public
interest and participation so that people ‘buy into' their city in a short
amount of time. One part of our city tour we visited the Nottingham Castle where there were several
exhibitions; one of them was Anish Kapoors work. Anish Kapoors is a prize
winning British sculptor with a CBE. Kapoor has been making waves since
his arrival in London in the 1980s, with bold sculptures and more recently
architectural pieces designed for large public spaces (‘Leviathan’,
2011) and in Nottingham we have the Sky Mirror which is located outside the
Nottingham Playhouse. Kapoor’s works was displayed in The Long Gallery
of Nottingham Castle. As well as the usual gallery appetisers of books,
photographs and a beautiful film exploring the works of Kapoor.The exhibition focuses on three common
themes in Kapoor’s work: Colour, Reflection and Humanity. This piece of installation is of similar
trait to that of the Sky mirror at the Playhouse Theatre.When viewed from a distance you see the
entire audience perfectly framed and miniaturized into a small world.
Im hope that you have enjoyed my interpretation of 'A Small World'. Please go and view the other Headbangers creations from the link on my page. Don't hesitate to leave your views and comments. Its all in the name of 'FUN'.
