On Tuesday I took my son Oliver to see Richard Wilson’s Butterfly at the Wapping Project. Maybe I didn’t read the publicity properly but I really wasn’t expecting anything so exciting. We talked to the artist and pestered his crew as they coaxed a beautiful, shiny light aeroplane from an unrecognisable lump of crushed aluminium and steel – the plane at the centre of a web of colourful tensioned straps. It was beautiful and quite moving.
I took lots of pictures – I put most of them here. I also used Apple’s iPhoto to create a 640×480 Quicktime movie (1.7 Mbyte) from the stills (Juliet helped me edit it!).
