The tyranny of distance, and idea proposed by, Geoffrey Blainey, is to some extent still in place, and sometimes the internet amplifies it, other times it diminishes it. Sometimes, both.
These exhibitions all look interesting, I found out about them via the internet, but of course it is not possible for me to visit any of them.
- The Animals are outside today
- The list on this page just makes me weep, I would so love to see more of Emmet Gowin's work in the flesh. And on and on and on....
Of course seeing screen versions of these images, if the galleries in question have an online exhibition, in no way replaces the experience of seeing them in the flesh.
Or does it?
