Overview Effect: Earth as a Spaceship

Here is a 20min short that comes close to what one might deem as compulsory viewing. I’ve often heard that those who have been lucky enough to have seen Earth from space never fail to react to it in a powerful way; very lovely to hear a collection of feelings, thoughts and emotions here. Our precious and glimmering bauble, hurtling around our solar system can be thought of as a living spaceship. There is also a large slice of Lovelock’s Gaia about this, although not mentioned.

Dalston // Commuter Meltdown

On a stretch of the M40 before it hits the M25 is a fence upon which was the message that you see below.  After years of daily grinding along the same dry route towards a vapid office, a commuter finally snapped at some point during the 90s. During this inspired corporate meltdown, the sorry worker-droid daubed 'Why do I do this everyday' across this stretch of fence  - this was later repainted:

Why do I still do this everyday?

In the Scolt's Head pub I recently came across a similar sentiment, albeit one stuck in a totally different rut (and perhaps with a touch less conviction).  It was scrawled onto the back of a bathroom door and served as an instant reminder to the work that I remember seeing a few times in the '90s.

"It's too easy to get stuck doing this every weekend.  Every fucking weekend"
(Artist Unknown, Black Sharpie on pub door, Feb 2013)

There is a certain tragedy that goes hand in hand with these acts; they are as much a cry for help as they are pieces of graffiti.  If either of these two trapped-expressionists are readers of PowerDome, good news. Get in touch, I think I've got a few ideas about how to shake things up.
