This is a Yoko Ono art installation "SKY EVENT" currently on show at Downing College Cambridge



I was amused by the warning on the info board.....

"Danger Risk of Eyes Rolling".

Wasn't this setup used in an episode of the Avengers with Steed and Tara King meeting "Mother" in a room full of step ladders? I suspect the Tara King (played by Linda Thorson) period was affected by LSD!

I remember when we were going to go metric, and drive on the right!

The Spring of 1968 embraced my rites of passage. I'm not so sure that I was too concerned that the sky would be affected in any way by my shouting (being an angry young man, then), or, any other action on my part. I find it difficult to believe (I don't really) that there those in my peer group who wrote this drivel and who criticised me for not joining them in their ardent belief that the lyrics to A Whiter Shade of Pale were meaningful.

Or, "Danger Risk of Vomiting", which is incidentally the subject of Whiter Shade of Pale - a girl getting worse for wear on alcohol and chemicals.

1968 was not a good year, Paris riots, The Vietnam War hotting up, assassinations. I used to be given the Telegraph colour magazine every week by my aunt.

I cannot but wonder as to how much that all cost.

However much it was, it was too much.

And if (a very big if!) I were there and saw the "Installation", I certainly would not have contributed anything if requested. It it were a worthy charity, I would contribute directly rather than through the 'installation'!
