Light, Camera, Action


I saw this birdcage in Asda’s and just had to get it. I’m always fascinated by design and the thought or otherwise that goes into it.

birdcage-225x300Here we have a bird, outside of an empty birdcage, symbolic of escape and freedom. And yet what does it do? It sits on the top – even when the lamp is lit.

Very similar to the often quoted frog in a pan of boiling water, where it is stated that if you put a frog in a pan of hot water it leaps out straight away. Whereas, if you put it in a pot of cold water it will remain there as the water heats up even to boiling point, and its demise.

The concept being that whilst we leap out of immediate danger – if it creeps up on us it becomes the norm and we no longer notice the pain.

What should you be flying away from that still hurts you?
