Somerset House 1

Last Friday I went to London to stay with Son number 2 and his family, but first a bit of art at Somerset House where they are holding the London Design Biennial

‘Emotional States’

40 countries participated

In the courtyard there were several pieces of interactive art/sculpture – my favourite type of art.

My own experience of it emphasized that every step we take has an impact.LDB sculpture

As you entered the sides expanded and opened up, with a creaky sound, each step made the next section open up for you, each step felt a bit wobbly

A whole body experience has an impact on all the senses – every step I take makes a difference …  to something, or somebody.

If I know it in my body, I know it forever.

There was so much to see and interact with in the whole exhibition, and as you can imagine I took hundreds of photos. It is taking me a while to process the photos and the feelings that each exhibit evoked …… more to come.

  4. I am so glad you chose to just do the one experience – it is just wonderful and amazing on every level! Your description of walking it is just how we should walk every moment of our lives isn’t it. The ecological, personal, spiritual, communal impact of every step, every choice, every decision is hidden in this amazing interactive sculpture ….. Wow!!
