Photo-a-day 14: Blue Carpet


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 6 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 6 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...


Heatherwick’s Blue Carpet has long been a source of controversy in Newcastle – not least as it isn’t really blue any more. Some reviewers say that you can be stood in the middle of it and not know it’s an artwork: this was certainly the experience of my girlfriend earlier today!
