Dirty City

Abu Dhabi: dirty form

In Abu Dhabi for the week – a mixture of new-new and sandstorm-building-site-dust-covered buildings, the textures of fast, expensive cars, marble, kerbs, migrant labour uniforms, road-brushes, palms, agate, agate, agate. A hotel lobbies that you could spend an age talking in the low voices.

When you can create any reality, what do you want to create?

I don’t aspire to this.

But I do need to understand this.
