‘The Temple of a Thousand Bells’ is a must-see installation at St Mary’s in York until November 4th 2012. It’s a really evocative piece – make sure you stand in the middle to get the full effect like I did, unlike the other visitors.
For those of you who can’t make it, this link gives you a good idea of what it’s about, including some of the ‘soundscape’ which accompanies the installation.
Whilst out and about in York last week I came upon this intriguing photoshoot in the area in front of Betty’s cafe. Why the model was hanging from the lampost wasn’t exactly clear. I wasn’t sure if she was modelling clothes, the handbag or maybe she was starring in a local theatre production. One of the two other women in the party was carrying a heavy pile of old fashioned looking books – another prop to be used later perhaps?
