Passing through the British Airways lounge at Brussels airport, I spotted a fun series of photographs by Edinburgh born artist Anna Boggon. The series, features a number of mirror houses scattered throughout the open farmyard at Hackney City Farm. Resident ducks flirt and preen at their reflections in the smart, architectural surroundings.
I can't help but think, is this supposed to be a jibe at frequent flyers? Jostling amongst one another for top-tier status before hitting the sky? it should be. Or, perhaps it says more about Design Trawler than it does about the artist?
