The London Eye sees more than you could ever imagine ...
London – around the eye The London Eye, right next to the river Thames – a subversive culture of random tourists mixed with hybrid entertainers from a circus beyond the imagination of the ordinary. Never failing to open up the gap in your mind which then tells you WTF is this all about?! The smell of coffee drifts and mixes with the linguistic murmur of many lands. Multi layered memory of spinning orbs in bright sunshine, whilst a man in a black wig does Elvis with a swing of his hips and golden medallion on his hairy chest. Candy floss on a stick, snow globes & England flags, whilst the Thames floats on by regardless as it always has & always will do, with the occasional log & shopping trolley…. A waiting station for alien transportation perhaps?
Those orbs that glisten on their rounded journey. The Truth is out there … ?
Have you ever wished that you could just extend the view of your camera to perfectly capture what you see through your viewfinder? See how an artist does exactly just that with this series of sketches based on old photographs.
