It’s curious how themes appear in our lives. We find a kernel of one and start thinking about it…and before we know it, we begin to find evidence of it in the most unlikely places. So it happened with Mo Khan’s brilliant vine of a diy magic carpet with power to transport.(It’s the only really good use we’ve seen for a hoverboard.) It got us thinking about diy magic carpets…
…which led us to stumble upon another, rather conceptual form of magic carpet: artist Sebastian Wrong’s Sigmund’s Chair, with its reference to Sigmund Freud’s legendary study where all sorts of dreaming took place…
It seems magic carpets can take various forms…(Video link here.)
And then there’s the great Emily Dickinson’s view:
SOME things that fly there be,—
Birds, hours, the bumble-bee:
Of these no elegy.
Some things that stay there be,—
Grief, hills, eternity:
Nor this behooveth me.
There are, that resting, rise.
Can I expound the skies?
How still the riddle lies!
