‘Raging Against The Dying Light’ – Disraeli Road, SW15

Observing an old man pushing his shopping trolley very slowly. A laminated A4 sign placed at the front of the container announces and invites us to ‘WEB, FACEBOOK OR TWIT ETC TO THE WORLD’ in a bid to counter the blight on his and other residents lives. Namely that of the dystopian architectural beanstalk that is the inexorable rise of ‘luxury apartments’. For this ‘old age and disabled, world war pensioner’ the declining quality of life will be heightened with this impending Tower of Babel, threatening to literally and metaphorically close in on his confined dwelling. A kind of mobile take on the sandwich board protest placard.
