Work No. 851V: Midge dot com

Midge dot com / Love is in the Air
Art Axis 2016

A FFWD’d metaphoric synoptic analogous overview of the contemporary dating scene, the forces of attraction / rejection at play being primarily looks (or lack of), youth (or lack of ) and wealth (or lack thereof) – although the more lovey-dovey pink floral Barbara Cartland-at-heart eternal optimists amongst us may disagree. ( Time and tide experience of human nature over the years puts that one to bed, as it were. )

Call this cynical, but nearly half of UK marriages end in divorce and two-thirds of partners in relationships or marriage admit to having ventured at least one date or fling on the side – the true figures likely to be higher in both regards, naturally.

  • Update Oct 2016; Beware a date’s parting shot ” let’s keep in touch”. Almost certainly code for ” I’d rather not keep in touch with you”.. onwardsforwards they will go to their next midg.. er match.

London Dada Work No. 849; What’s the Storey, Welsh Assembly?

Storey Arms tourist hotspot neglected
What’s the Storey, Welsh Assembly?
Michael St.Mark 2016

Scene at the Storey Arms tourist hotspot in the Brecon Beacons, South Wales ( frequently used as an emergency toilet )

Neglected and totally under-developed over decades apart from an outdoor education centre for young people, this famous Welsh tourist hotspot and main hillwalkers’  springboard to Pen-y-Fan, southern Britain’s highest point, is a national disgrace. The massively overcrowded car park is in dire need of expanding, with vehicles being parked dangerously near the road on grass verges for 1/4 mile down the hill in the busy summer months. A safe crossing for walkers over the very busy A road with its fast-moving cars and trucks, from the car park to the mountain path, urgently needs constructing.  The whole site is badly in need of modernizing out of its present threadbare infrastructure with – where there are any – run-down antiquated facilities. Says a lot about the Labour-controlled Welsh Assembly’s priorities, considering its been in existence for many years now. If this Welsh gem was duplicated anywhere else in W. Europe it would be recognized for the vibrant tourist hub that it is and developed & made fit for the 21st C instead of being left to languish as a shabby run-down 1970s relic.
