Distractions, reflections

David Ing, at large … Sometimes, my mind wanders

Routing back from the ISSS 2011 meeting in Hull, Diana, Adam, Thuy and I stopped over for a few days in London.  From King’s Cross, we rode the underground to go to the hotel in Earl’s Court.  I might have checked the map more closely, as the West Kensington or West Brompton stations would have have been closer.  Our luggage is on wheels, but we had a long walk.

Our sightseeing started around Pimlico, where we unexpectedly found a summer show of graduate works at the Chelsea College of Art and Design.  The installation by Minji Lee was one of the more intriguing.

Across the street, at the Tate Britain Gallery, we encountered voices in the upper gallery, so we timed a response to oooh back at them.

A body movement artist mimicked anyone who entered her range, so Adam tried to challenge her with less conventional poses.
