Ikebana
7 months ago

Oxford Ikebana Study Group exhibition. The theme is arrangements based on Japanese haiku poems. They are strictly 17 syllables of Japanese, translations are not constrained. This display is based on a Kobayashi Issa (1763-1827) poem: Purple fireworks/bursting from long green stems/allium in bloom. Since the flowers are cut the exhibition lasted just 4 hours.

My last post was Tourist hell. I was interested in the comments. On the pigeon-holing principle one person mentioned surrealism, another the pink Bentley. One of the five photographs in that set is very good. Nobody said anything about that.

Just shown on tv here a programme about museum regeneration, within it a 5-minute section of Rankin (a photographer) who went to Newcastle (a city about 270 miles distant) and photographed, printed and exhibited photographs of amateur gardeners all in one day.
