Postcard from Wellington

If it’s not on Google Images it never existed. That might turn out to be the end of the road for a whole heap of art that happened before the internet got up and running. Take One Day Sculpture in which the works only existed for 24 hours. It only happened once and that was over two years ago but it is still very well recorded online. Then try googling Neil Dawson’s temporary sculpture Get the picture that was attached to the Wellington Railway station for about a month in 1989 and see how far you get. “Why cant you get the picture: Photos from Alex Dawson” or a picture of hunks and hunkesses from Dawson’s Creek, that’s how far. So here’s a pic of it from our files to put it into that space.
