Art, with a capital A.

I went to the Anish Kapoor exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art on my last day in Sydney. I got there a bit early and the gallery wasn't yet open.

So I went for a walk and found this guy lurking in the bushes.

And a Bridge.

A big bridge.

And a view.

And a couple of birds.

I used to work here, and my commute every morning brought me across the harbour by ferry, I then walked about five minutes and disappeared into one of the buildings you can see in this picture… the ugliest one.

Finally the museum opened - I was the first person to buy a ticket that day. I managed to confuse the salesgirl by having the wrong accent for the country I said I came from.

This piece is called “memory”. It takes up the whole room, and short of taking the roof off I'm not sure how they got it in there - you can see it from different places, from here it looks like a big metal zeppelin, but from another angle it's like a big black hole - which echoes.

Lots of fun with distorting mirrors… I like to call this one “Does my bum look big in this?”

“Four Eyes”

“Ms Bendy splits down”

“A splitting headache”

“The incredible shrinking woman”, or alternatively “The mirror every woman should have”

“Ms Invisible”

I am standing directly in front of the shape for this photo, and yet I disappear.
