Max Headroom

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room – I have used a similar image to this once before but regardless of the repetition, when I get an idea in my head, I find it hard to dislodge.  These heads hang in the East Court, a magnificent exhibition space within the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum in Glasgow. There is maximum head room as East Court is open to the ceiling, the atrium space being surrounded by the Picture Promenade, the gallery where this image was taken.

Max Headroom

These heads and this space reminded me of something, and suddenly it came to me – Max Headroom – the World’s first computer-generated TV host.

      Thanks Michele – I had forgotten all about him and then suddenly he was in my head. Funny how the brain works, well mine anyway 🙂

      Thanks Tish – I don’t like to put up near-reapeats but I am struggling with inspiration since our return from France.

    Great photo. I LOVED Max Headroom. What a great show!

      Many thanks, I thought Max was great too. What happened to him – he seemed like the perfect TV personality to me. At least he cannot have been sacked because of age-discrimination 🙂

    Interesting photo of an unusual exhibit, although not really my cup of tea. (I prefer oolong.) 🙂

    Love the image Robin and I can see the connection-Max Headroom- what a message for the masses he had in the ’80s 😉

    Wild and creepy exhibition!

      They are a sinister bunch in a mad clown sort of way – Jack Nicholson must be in there somewhere 😈
