Last night’s “Earth Hour” reminded me of something: As in previous years I’ve missed again to dignify the “Day of the Shoe”. So I’m just copying my lousy excuse from 2011 in here (see below). One brief note on the image – I can’t recall having abused shoes to such a degree ever. They’ve been loyal companions on numerous rides over the years. I finally had to chuck them out for health&safety reasons.
Let me describe the following as “embarassing”. I was trying to set up this public holiday, or let’s title it rather “Remembrance Day”. But how can you establish something like the “Day of the Shoe” if the founder himself forgets about it (nearly) every year. Doesn’t look like I will be able any time soon to turn that day into an extra Bank Holiday in the UK.
Anyways, happy (delayed) Day of the Shoe (15 Oct)!
(More information on this day in previous posts such as that one here.)
Brilliant gathering of some of the most impressive light installations from the last decades. My favourites were:
— Anthony McCall
— Doug Wheeler
— Carlos Cruz-Diez
— David Batchelor
— Jenny Holzer
