Day 71: Pillar Box Rust A few weeks ago I was down at the Royal Brompton Hospital in South Kensington. South Kensington is sedate, well kept and not a hair out of place. One of the things I marvelled at was the bright, shiny, spruceness of the red pillar boxes. I even contemplated them as a topic for a days of awe post but the photographs al beit shiny and red had a flatness and superficiality that did nothing to inspire my creative juices. Unlike my local North Kensington post box which I used today. I noticed it’s chipped and tried smile in contrast to the polished perfection of it’s South Kensington cousins. I couldn’t quite see the top of the box but my camera could. What a landscape! It could be the moon, if the moon were red. Far more interesting than the inaccessible surface of newly painted surfaces.
100 Days of Awe is a playful project I set up to bring my attention to awe in my daily life. I see awe as wonder, a mixture of amazement and respect. I expect the experience of awe to be about perception shifting awareness and that demands a reframing of some sort. I am excited to see what will awe me on this journey.
