Shattered Dreams


I was amazed to see on BBC 10 o’clock news tonight that two people were killed as the artwork Dreamspace took off. This artwork is the creation of the artist Stephen Montague who also created the sister work Colourscapes (which I blogged about last week). They appear to be two versions of the same concept.  Dreamspace was recently
destroyed by vandals in Liverpool, so it must have been repaired.

According to eyewitness reports one man inside the sculpture assumed that the take-off was part of the experience. It was the landing that gave it away.  There are some pictures of the accident scene at the BBC site.  There are happier photos dating back to 24 September 2004, over at Flickr.

What a terrible shame, I’ve been in at least one of these, back in the late 70’s on the South Bank with my folks, would have been worse if we had been blown into the Thames…I shudder to think!
