Here is a part of my UPside piece, titled “UPworld”, what a witty naming…

This zeppelin which climbed UP to the summit of the moon has an old little UPlifting nursery rhyme behind:

“What is the news of the day,
Good neighbor, I pray?”
“They say the balloon
Is gone up to the moon!”
(anon.)

Depiction of Poetry is my ongoing project where I try to visualize nonsensical poetry and nursery rhymes. Ideally, it should not be just a description of what is going on in the story or lines, but should represent the whole whimsical atmosphere and even the joy of rhyming.  Then this time, I looked for a nursery rhyme which contains the word “UP”.

I wondered if it was too simple to draw the thing going UP in UPside exhibition. But when it gets a little story behind, it will tell something more to you, I hope…

This may not look like something to feel happy and optimistic. I myself can’t understand why I feel a strange warmth when cycling by the rough Aylesbury Estate in South London. These crumbling huge estates grow some sort of nostalgia in me that contradicts any article one might have read about in the last 20 years… They’re like titans from a distant past when architecture was obviously thought opposite than we do now. It’s a pleasure experiencing them before they completely disappear. – Augustine
