BIG & small (a question from Nicki, “answered” by Lucas)

Filed under: analysis? — Lucas @ 1:49 pm

The first swift reply has come through, from Nicki, and a very challenging statement/question it is too! I think I will post it here first while I think about it. That way maybe one of you dear readers will help with the answer!

Some context: Nicki visited Kellerberrin for one day only, during my residency – she lives in Melbourne, and works for The South Project, which was sponsoring Cristina’s residency which ran parallel to mine. And so, onto Nicki’s question:

what was THAT all about?

Now that I am well and truly “away from Kellerberrin” I am in the process of sifting through the mound of stuff that was generated there (namely this blog!).

In an attempt to get to the bottom of it, I thought I’d interview myself online, about what went on, what was interesting about the process, etc etc.

Sydney Gaffer-Tape Dreams

Filed under: analysis? — Lucas @ 8:38 am

Bec and I are planning to fly from Perth to Sydney. We are convinced that we can do it alone, in these small, go-cart-like planes. There is a guy advising us, he reckons it will all be fine. But he does suggest taking off the windows to reduce weight. That way we won’t consume so much fuel.

We see other planes fly overhead. Their underbellies seem to be blacked out with Gaffer Tape. We follow suit, turning our planes over, and carefully layering the bottom with lines of black gaff.

I’m worried that the gaff will weigh down the plane, though. I’m also worried about what will happen if we lose each other in mid air. And of course, neither of us have ever flown a plane before…
