Nope – it’s not a giant Aero

30 12 2011

Someone™ once told me that when asked why he made several attempts to conquer Everest in the early 1920’s, George Mallory retorted “Because it’s there!” Of course, he then died trying, but that’s a different story. They did find him in the end. 1999 I believe. They’re still debating whether he beat Sir Edmund Hillary by 30 years. i.e. were his boots pointing up or down?

Anyway, “because it’s there” is a damned fine answer. Applies to many things, I reckon. Art in particular. I like to pay my readers the complement of a return visit, and more than often I find way more interesting things on their blogs than mine. I encourage you to make the journeys I did and check them out more thoroughly for yourself. This photo caught my eye for instance, on the ArtStormer blog. It looked like nothing so much as a sculpture carved out of a giant Aero.
