I am going to make an attempt to participate In Nancy Merrill’s photography challenge for 2017. You can read about the challenge here. Basically, she comes up with a theme and posts a photo that she think fits the theme on each Thursday. My task(as well as others following her meme) is to interpret her theme and post a photograph that I think fits the theme before the following Thursday, when a new theme is started.
I knew instantly what objects I wanted for this week’s theme “Red”: the red skate chairs from the Forks. Luckily I had taken a few photos in recent weeks(well, many photos actually!!):
The chairs were part of the Warming Huts Art and Architecture Competition in 2015 and this installation was called “Recycling Words”. Words relating to the history of The Forks are stencilled onto the back of each of the 50 chairs, allowing users to slide the chairs along the ice and assemble them to form phrases(for more info click here.) However, only one letter remains one this chair…but it could be from the word “AND”.
These chairs are still very popular 2 years after their debut on the ice:
