Field Polaroid #7: The Party is Over

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

Time to go, with the help of my little sister we released the remaining air out of the balloons so they could be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.


It's ironic that I write this last Field Polaroid instalmant surrounded by storage boxes, my backback and ticket and accomodation details. It's the end of a chapter. Archimedes' Field was about deaths: deaths of relationships, of dreams and aspirations. But thanks to nature it became more about the cycles that occur. Today a chapter of my life comes to an end but tomorrow I'm leaving on a jet plane (sing with me now!) for Europe, and a new beginning.

The exhibition opened last night and was quite a success. I had so many of my friends and family there to support me which was just wonderful. I said a lot of my goodbye's there and saw a lot of people I hadn't seen in a long time. Thanks for coming guys!!!

If you didn't get to the opening it will be showing until the 16th August and I'm in the window space so you can go at any time that suits you!

Anyway, I'd better get back to packing up my life now.
