Harry Pye: "On August the 31st 2015 I will become 42 years young. I intend to celebrate by spending 365 days making collaborations with artistic friends that have a place in my heart. When I stop being 42 (on August 31st 2016) I intend to bring out a little book about the adventures I've had.
I've asked 42 different people to write a 42 word quote about what the number 42 means to them. Artist Jackie Clark wrote: “A rainbow is formed by sunlight refracted and internally reflected by raindrops. The light in the bow corresponding to the minimum deviation of light. The radius is 42, being equal to 360 minus the angle of minimum deviation for a spherical drop.”
Urban Spaceman: Neil Innes meanwhile has written a 42 word poem for me...
"Life Begins At Sixes And Sevens
A Primary colour is Red
A Primary colour is Yellow
Seven sixes make Forty-Two
(Nothing rhymes with Orange
So think nothing of it)
Another Primary Colour is Blue
That is why five eights
Make Forty too"
If you're up for writing a 42 word poem or quote please bring it along on Wednesday and add it to our wall of quotes!
