Vacillating Over Vacillating Over Road Surface

Pretty pleased with the current road surface in front of the station.





But previously I had tried a mad experiment with a pattern taken from a 1960s pop-art lampshade.




What drew me to using this pattern was the impression I hoped it would give of a wet, murky city asphalted road surface - the swirls suggesting the reflections of a wet surface.

But alas, I deemed it unsuccessful.

Today, I tried the pattern again but reduced the scale of the swirls.






Still not sure.


I wish I could make up my mind about these things.

Is it not perhaps the nature of the human mind that it is never fully satisfied with anything and one should just accept that the only way to avoid the consequent and inevitable infinite regress is to at some point make a decision in the knowledge that, by definition, the solution is never going to be perfect?

What I love about "Ich Bin Meine Maschine" is that its only lyrics are "Ich bin meine maschine".

It reminds me of "Little Fluffy Clouds" by The Orb; its only lyrics are "Little fluffy clouds" - perfect.



From 1990
