Not really a blog, but consider it an intro of sorts to a larger item following.
Rose asked for some elaboration on this recently installed overpass sculptural structure at the Christchurch Airport, Harewood: The gateway To Antarctica. Since I drive through this symbolism-loaded monstrosity on a daily basis, I took some snaps of the hidden inverse-"V" underneath creating a Masonic square and compass and an "as above so below" motif.
At night the colours shift Red/yellow/green/blue/purple.
The shift is slow and there is no stopping bay, so the pics were taken through the car window as I drove through at 80kph!
Here's a Google images pic which shows the effect far better:
And best of all, here's a fantastic YT vid of drive both night and day:
I believe the overall message relates to a prism as per Pink Floyd's famous album cover. The connection to Antarctica relates to Oz (Terra australis) and a mystical land "over the rainbow". As well as a connection to the moon and Saturn via 2001 and The Wizard of Oz.
The other connecting element in Christchurch architecture is The Christchurch Casino. More on decoding that edifice soon. Thanks for watching!
